The Home Depot Foundation focuses its philanthropic efforts on improving the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families and aiding communities affected by natural disasters. We are proud to be a long-standing and significant supporter of the American Red Cross and its nationwide network of chapters, as a member of both the Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program and Service to Armed Forces Giving Program.
Through the Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program, we support communities with disaster preparedness, immediate relief, as well as recovery. Our associates often join the effort, using tools and supplies donated by The Home Depot.
Our partnership with the Red Cross Service to Armed Forces is an extension of our company’s nationwide effort to improve the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families, which has helped to build, renovate and transform more than 25,000 homes for veterans since 2011. The Red Cross is a vital resource to the men and women serving our country and a leader as a convener of services to our veterans. Through Service to Armed Forces volunteers and resources, we have expanded our effort to help reconnect our veterans with communities and services where they live.
We are proud to partner with the Red Cross in their work making communities safe before, during and after disasters, as well as in their engagement with service members and veterans.
