The volunteers completed the improvements to benefit the veteran residents of The Stand Down House of Palm Beach County over a three-day period in late April.
Pitching in to help transform lives of those who served our country, Dal-Tile Home Center Sales teammates joined volunteers from major HCS customer The Home Depot, non-profit organization Rebuilding Together and Mohawk to renovate a veterans shelter in Florida over a three-day period in late April.
The HCS team were among a group of volunteers who painted, decorated living spaces, and created gardens and other landscaping at The Stand Down House of Palm Beach County. The facility provides recovery housing for around 85 veterans transitioning from homelessness as well as dealing with mental health and substance abuse issues.
In addition to The Stand Down House project, the nearly 750 volunteers who participated during the three days worked on two additional renovation projects in the area. The projects were made possible through The Home Depot Foundation, which has committed to donating $500 million dollars by 2025 toward veterans’ causes.
“It was fantastic working alongside our Home Depot colleagues and others to enhance this essential, beneficial space,” said Vice President of Home Centers and Distributor Sales Hector Narvaez. “We’re honored to actively support The Home Depot Foundation in its mission to provide extremely meaningful assistance to service veterans.”
Dal-Tile Home Center Sales teammates Mike Bartlett, Harry Scott, Katherine Tullis and Scott Horack took a break with Narvaez while volunteering on The Stand Down House renovations with other volunteers.
