In October 2013, The Home Depot Canada Foundation released its Thought Leadership White Paper on Youth Homelessness and pledged $10 million to help put an end to youth homelessness in Canada.
We have named this initiative The Orange Door Project.
Over the next three years, along with our community partners, The Home Depot Canada’s suppliers, customers and associates, we will support renovation and repair projects, life skill development programs, and research and collaboration programs that benefit homeless and vulnerable youth.
Together, we can give our youth the opportunity to realize a brighter future.
Thank you to more than 400 participants who took part in the 2015 The Home Depot Charity Classic on August 12th at Angus Glen in Markham, Ontario. Together we raised more than $1.2-million! The proceeds from this event will support our commitment to help put an end to youth homelessness in Canada.
Thank you again to our supplier community for your generosity.
Nanaimo Youth Services Association (NYSA) is a community-based, not-for-profit, charitable society that provides a range of residential and supportive services to vulnerable and homeless youth in the Nanaimo Regional District.
Funds raised by The Home Depot Nanaimo store associates through The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign will support the purchase of towels and toiletries, proper business attire for youth to wear to job interviews and the workplace and other necessities that youth coming from a state of homelessness need in order to move forward with their lives.
NYSA was the recipient of a grant through The Home Depot Canada Foundation's 2014 The Orange Door Project grant program.
