From now until June 24th, The Home Depot Abbotsford location is raising funds to support homeless youth programs at Abbotsford Community Services (ACS).
Customers can purchase paper orange doors for $2 at the till and Home Depot doubles donations for top-performing stores and associates.
“Home Depot has been supporting our youth programs for the past five years and we are so grateful for their donations and team of volunteers,” said Lisa Ardzivian, a supervisor at ACS.
The Home Depot Canada Foundation has pledged to invest $20 million over five years through The Orange Door Project in an effort to end youth homelessness. This initiative will give homeless youth the housing, support and hope they need to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
“Every night in neighbourhoods across the country more than 6,000 youth don’t have a safe place to call home. That is why 100 per cent of every customer donation goes directly to helping youth impacted by this very serious issue,” said Jeff Kinnaird, chair of the Home Depot Canada Foundation board of directors.
“Thanks to the support of our communities, we’re helping vulnerable and homeless youth realize brighter futures, one orange door at a time.”
ACS is a non-profit, multi-service, community-based social service agency with over 90 programs and services to people in need. ACS has a wide range of services for youth including a youth health centre, street outreach program, a group home and independent living supportive housing.
