The Home Depot adds sheen to Street Culture Kidz home for young men!
On October 8, associates from the two The Home Depot stores in Regina partnered to complete a series of small projects at Street Culture Kidz’ residential home for young men. These improvements included landscaping, painting, installing baseboards and building a storage shed.
“It was a busy but rewarding day,” said Karen Ulsifer, Assistant Store Manager and Team Depot Captain at The Home Depot Regina East location. “The youth that participated gained do-it-yourself skills they will be able to use once they move to independent living.”
Street Culture Kidz was the recipient of a $25,000 grant through The Home Depot Canada Foundation’s Affordable Housing Grant program in 2013. The funds were used to replace a fire escape, install windows, doors, weather stripping and insulation and repair a veranda and back deck at Gretta Lynn’s Inn, their peer support/stabilization home for boys.
