Big Thank You to Team Home Depot!

We would like to thank Team Home Depot for all of the work they did to make our office warm, inviting and organized. In addition to painting two offices, they completely insulated and drywalled our reception office, painted, put in a new floor and hung new cabinets. Staff volunteered their time and materials were covered through a foundation fund. The office looks incredible and is so much more functional! We can't thank you enough!!  To find out more about Home Depot and our other sponsors read their stories here.
