The Home Depot Partners with Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity to Build New Home for Veteran

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

More than 60 area Home Depot associates from 8 Stores will partner with Joplin Area Habitat for Humanity to build a new home for a local veteran family. Thanks to donations from a WWII Veteran, Harold Layton, the American Legion Post 13, and finally a $31,000 grant from Home Depot gave us everything we needed to build this home for a veteran in need of better housing.

Our Veteran we are building for is Ronald King, a Veteran of the U.S. Army who served in Germany from 1965 to 1967. He is a retired policeman and Fire Chief of Webb City.

The Habitat home build began yesterday with Home Depot volunteers who are working throughout the week. This project is part of The Home Depot’s ongoing efforts to improve the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families. Since 2011, The Home Depot Foundation has transformed more than 33,000 homes and facilities for veterans across the country. Giving back to veterans is personal to The Home Depot, as more than 35,000 of the company’s associates have served in the military.

Location: 2123 S. Wall Ave, Joplin

When Wednesday, July 26th, raising walls from 9:00 to 1:00. The homeowners will be on hand as will our volunteers and Home Depot representatives. We will continue to build and raise walls the rest of the week as well.
