Home Depot lends helping hand to Atlanta

BY CSA STAFF

ATLANTA, Ga. The Home Depot Foundation and associates from The Home Depot are joining in the relief efforts in the aftermath of the floods that have caused significant damage throughout the Metro Atlanta area. The Home Depot Foundation has committed $100,000 in donations, with $50,000 going to the American Red Cross for immediate emergency disaster assistance and another $50,000 to go to the longer term rebuilding process.

“[We] know that repairing the damage will be a long process for homeowners, business and communities. That’s why we will also support the longer-term efforts by investing in organizations that will rebuild these homes and communities in a healthy, sustainable way,” said Kelly Caffarelli, president of The Home Depot Foundation.

Several local Home Depot stores have already been involved in emergency relief efforts through product donations to local cities. These donations have included tarps, wet patch roof cement, bottled water and buckets.

“Store associates are already planning Team Depot volunteer events to help their communities clean up and get back on their feet,” said Caffarelli.
