I am so thrilled to share with you another amazing opportunity that I have been given the honor in which to participate!
I have been praying that God would use my blog is some way to serve others in REAL LIFE.
That is why I was thrilled when Cy and I were given the opportunity in July to help someone in need of a home.
And now, I have been given the opportunity to team up with Home Depot to help serve those special people who have given their lives to serve others…
Last year, The Home Depot Foundation launched its first-ever Celebration of Service volunteer campaign. Throughout the two-month initiative, nearly 9,000 store associates worked side-by-side with veterans to complete 320 service projects across the country.
Today, The Home Depot® Foundation announced that it has surpassed the three-year $30 million pledge it made in 2011 to veterans’ housing initiatives more than a year ahead of schedule.
As part of its second annual Celebration of Service campaign, the Foundation is now committing an additional $50 million to veterans’ nonprofits over the next three years in an effort to ensure every veteran has a safe place to call home.
In addition to its funding commitment, The Home Depot Foundation’s Celebration of Service campaign kicks off today with Team Depot associate volunteers repairing and renovating 100 veterans’ homes in 13 cities. Over the next two months, through Veterans Day, thousands of Home Depot associates across the country will complete more than 300 service projects to benefit veterans and their families.
Guess what I get to do?!
I will be flying up to Michigan in a couple of weeks to help participate in a Celebration of Service! There will be other sweet bloggers there with me.
I will also be given the opportunity to participate in TWO more Celebration of Service events over the new few months.
It is going to be such a GREAT honor to give back to our Veterans, and I feel so blessed to be able to do so.
I will be sharing all the fun right here on my blog! Can’t wait!!!
