The Home depot Canada Foundation is committed to ending youth homelessness, pledging to invest $10 million over three years through The Orange Door Project. This initiative will give homeless youth the housing, support and hope they need to live safe, healthy and productive lives.
One component of The Orange Door Project is The Home Depot's national fundraising campaign. From now until July 2, The Home Depot customers can buy a $2 paper door in support of a local youth-focused housing charity.
All proceeds raised at the Timmins ON The Home Depot store during the campaign will support The Good Samaritan Inn Homeless shelter.
Encourage your friends, family members, neghbours and colleagues to support the campaign today!
