Home Depot makes charitable moves
Using a Twitter campaign to help ramp up participation and visibility, The Home Depot Foundation is donating up to $100,000 to Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that provides financial assistance to veterans, for the holidays.
"Veterans have given so much of themselves to ensure our freedom, yet so many face housing challenges – from accessibility to homelessness to maintenance," said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. "We've committed $80 million over five years to ensure every veteran has a safe place to call home, and partnerships with nonprofits like Operation Homefront are vital to achieving our mission."
Those who tweet #TeamDepot between #GivingTuesday (Dec. 3) and New Year's Eve (Dec. 31) will help share support for veterans, as well as increase the total donation amount ($1 per tweet, up to $100,000).
Operation Homefront is a national partner of The Home Depot Foundation and has helped repair and retrofit the homes of wounded veterans with the retailer's assistance.
