BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA — Home Depot is making sure that local veterans will enjoy the freedom a mortgage-free and specially adapted home brings to a wounded veteran returning home.
In September of this year Home Depot Specialty Sales Assistant Store Manager, Carol Buturla, informed the Homes for Warriors program that they were to be awarded with $8,000 in store gift cards to be used for the ongoing construction of homes for local wounded veterans.
To date Home Depot has donated over $16,000 toward the Homes for Warriors program.
The Homes for Warriors program, in partnership with the Space Coast Paratroopers Association, assists veterans with their housing needs.
“Home Depot has been a valuable partner,” says Bob Williams who manages the program for the city.
“Not only has the Home Depot contributed financially, they have given their time too. Associates from the store can always be found volunteering at our work-sites. We could not do this without the help of volunteers and community business partners.”
The program builds and refurbishes homes for veterans looking to rebuild their lives, and once again become productive members of the community.
“Here in Palm Bay we are a community and we take care of each other. It doesn’t matter if you are a big chain or a mom-and-pop store, when you contribute to a local program like this you can immediately see the benefits coming back tenfold,” said Palm Bay Mayor William Capote.
