The Home Depot’s Sault Ste. Marie store has raised $4,272 to Pauline’s Place through its Orange Door Project fundraising campaign. Pauline’s Place will use the donations to support local youth who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
“Thank you to the members of the community who donated to help our charity prevent and end youth homelessness,” said Anne Penney, Executive Director, Pauline’s Place. “Your support and generosity will help us provide safe, stable housing and life skills development programs for homeless and at-risk youth.”
Between May 31 and June 24, Home Depot customers and associates supported the campaign by donating $2 in exchange for paper orange doors. All 182 Home Depot Canada stores took part and The Home Depot Canada Foundation distributed over one million dollars to 120 youth shelters, drop-in centres and aid organizations across Canada.
“We believe that good neighbours make great neighbourhoods,” said Jeff Kinnaird, chair, board of directors, The Home Depot Canada Foundation and president, The Home Depot Canada. “We’re proud that every dollar from each Orange Door purchased during the campaign goes towards helping the communities our customers and associates live and work in.”
The Orange Door Project campaign was established by The Home Depot Canada Foundation to help prevent and end youth homelessness in Canada.
