The Home Depot has mobilized emergency support to aid relief and recovery efforts in more than 20 affected communities.
Team Depot, the company’s associate-led volunteer force, has jumped into action in communities across Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi and Florida in need of immediate assistance. In several communities, The Home Depot is partnering with nonprofit organizations like Team Rubicon and ToolBank USA to set up supply command centers in store parking lots.
The Home Depot’s merchandising and supply chain teams also have been moving recovery supplies including tarps, generators, water, wet vacs and pumps into the impacted areas to assist residents with clean-up efforts.
To support the ongoing recovery in the many communities impacted by the spring storms, The Home Depot Foundation has donated more than $80,000 through its nonprofit partnerships. Additionally, The Homer Fund has begun helping associates and their families affected by the storms.
The Home Depot is also a member of the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program (ADGP). The Company’s annual $500,000 contribution to the ADGP enables the Red Cross to respond immediately to the needs of individuals and families affected by disaster anywhere in the United States.
