On December 11th, the Home Depot Foundation and Quest Communities went door-to-door and surprised veterans living at the Quest Veterans Village in northwest Atlanta with home care kits that included things like clothes, shoes, housewares, electronics, grocery gift cards and more. Along with the gifts came an even bigger holiday surprise: Rental assistance for the month of December. Photos of the socially-distanced gift-giving celebration showed some veterans moved to tears.
“We’re so grateful to the Home Depot Foundation for continually supporting our veterans. They’ve experienced tremendous challenges and made immeasurable sacrifices. They’re really excited and grateful to receive these gifts which symbolize our nation’s heart-felt appreciation for them."
Quest Veterans Village is a 12-unit, garden-style apartment development that provides permanent supportive housing for veterans. The Home Depot Foundation provided the grant to build the village in 2011 and have since provided the funds for the construction of another affordable housing unite nearby.
Our veteran residents are so thankful for the community support this holiday season. Below is the card they sent to the Home Depot Foundation expressing their gratitude and appreciation for such an incredible organization that helps veterans everyday. More than 35,000 Home Depot associates are veterans or active duty military.
