Resource Assistance for Youth has curb appeal thanks to The Home Depot!

September 2016

On September 22, associates from a number of The Home Depot stores across Winnipeg rallied together to complete a series of outdoor improvements at Resource Assistance for Youth (RAY).

“It is always fun to bring associates together for a good cause,” said G Reyes, Store Manager and Team Depot Captain at The Home Depot St. Vital location. “We tried to make the space as inviting as possible for the youth that visit the RAY every day.”

RAY was also the charitable partner of The Home Depot Winnipeg stores during The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign that took place in September. Thanks to the generosity of The Home Depot customers who purchased ‘paper doors’ at the applicable stores, more than $44,168 was raised.

Team Depot Day for Atlantic Canada stores

September 2016

On Sept. 21, nine stores across Atlantic Canada completed nine projects, with nine local youth-serving charities. Projects ranged from painting, building a shed, installing cabinets and landscaping, no project was to hard for our teams to tackle.

It was important to associates to complete their projects on the same day because unlike other areas of the country, stores in this region are geographically spread out. Despite the distance, associates know they can make a bigger impact as a team.

“In the Maritimes, we're all in this together,” says Julie-Lynne Gallant-Bourque, assistant store manager at store 7148 in Moncton, N.B. “We all did something for our community together.”
