Operation Homefront gets infusion from Home Depot
San Antonio, Texas-based Operation Homefront, a national non-profit organization providing emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors, has received a $750,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation.
The gift will help wounded veterans with home projects and to help repair, rehabilitate and retrofit homes of veterans around the country.
In addition to funding, Team Depot, The Home Depot’s associate-led volunteer force, will lend a hand with the projects.
The grant also will help provide transitional family housing for Wounded Warriors leaving the military due to their injuries through the Operation Homefront Village programs near Washington, D.C., San Antonio and San Diego.
“We are committed to ensuring that every veteran has a safe place to call home,” said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation. “Operation Homefront is one of the key organizations working to address the needs of injured service members and their families, and we are honored to help them increase their capacity to serve those who have served us all.”
The gift is part of Home Depot’s "Celebration of Service" campaign to honor U.S. military veterans.
