The Home Depot Canada Foundation
As the charitable arm of Canada's largest home improvement retailer, The Home Depot Canada Foundation has time and time again shown their commitment to using their organization's skills, knowledge and resources to build vibrant, environmentally responsible Canadian communities. By supporting the 360 Built Smart Partnership, The Home Depot Canada Foundation will continue to do just this, by taking a long-term leadership role as title sponsor with Habitat for Humanity Canada's holistic movement aimed at providing low-income families with access to affordable housing, while creating sustainable communities for all Canadians.
"Before a family can set their sights on where they're going, they must first have a place to begin. We believe that a home is a starting point; a safe place where people and their ideas thrive. The transformation that we can ignite, whether through a single home, or through thousands of homes, truly is profound and enduring.” Peg Hunter, Vice President, Marketing and Communications, The Home Depot Canada and Secretary, The Home Depot Canada Foundation.
The Home Depot Canada and The Home Depot Canada Foundation have supported Habitat for Humanity Canada through cash and product donations and volunteer support since 1996. As the largest donor of Habitat for Humanity in Canada, the organization will contribute over $4 million in cash and product donations this year to affordable housing projects from coast to coast, including through the 360 Built Smart Partnership. Each year, The Home Depot Canada Foundation promotes awareness of Habitat for Humanity's local affiliates across Canada through their Buy a Hammer, Build Our Community campaign, which sees each store raise funds for a local charity of choice. Team Depot, The Home Depot's volunteer force of associates, has also resulted in tens of thousands of skilled labour hours being donated to Habitat for Humanity homebuilding projects across Canada.
