Team Depot

Giving back is a core value at The Home Depot and is a passion for our associates.

Through Team Depot, our associate-led volunteer program, The Home Depot associates are encouraged and empowered to take a leadership role in the community.

From updating a youth shelter with a fresh coat of paint to improving storage solutions at a local transitional home to enhancing outdoor spaces, our associates work with local charities to improve the homes and lives of thousands of deserving Canadians in need.

Annually, The Home Depot associates contribute more than 60,000 volunteer hours to community projects across Canada. As of December 2016, Team Depot associates across Canada worked with a variety of community partners to complete more than 185 projects.

Check out our associates in action on our success stories, photo and video gallery pages.

December

Associates at The Home Depot Canada’s Store Support Centre in Toronto, ON wanted to do something special during the holiday season, so they partnered with four youth-serving charities across the city - Covenant House Toronto, Kennedy House Youth Shelter and Youth Without Shelter and 360°kids – to complete a number of projects and spread cheer throughout the month of December.  Specifically, Team Depot associates:

·       Wrapped presents for youth supported by these charities.

·       Decorated the charities’ shelter spaces to bring Christmas cheer and a create feeling of “home” for the youth residents.

·       Provided special holiday care packages to help brighten the holiday season for young people begin served by these charities 

December 17

Associates from a number of The Home Depot stores in the Lower Mainland of BC spent the day volunteering at Aunt Leah’s Place- an organization that provides safe, secure housing and programs that give young people the practical skills they need to make a successful transition to adulthood and independence. Volunteers helped pre-load 60 holiday hampers with items such food and gifts for youth that have transitioned out Aunt Leah’s Place.

“This project was about our stores getting out and partnering with an organization that helps ensure youth in the Lower Mainland have something special to open this holiday season,” said Wilfred Meloche, Store Manager at The Home Depot North Surrey store. “Giving back to the community is so important to The Home Depot and we are thrilled to have been a part of this project.
