Home Depot gives $115,000 for flood efforts


ATLANTA Home Depot announced that, through the Home Depot Foundation, it has committed $100,000 to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, which has mobilized two relief funds, the Metro Nashville Disaster Response Fund and the Tennessee Emergency Response Fund.

"The widespread flooding throughout Nashville and Middle Tennessee is devastating on many levels, from the personal loss of homes and destruction of neighborhoods, to the immediate safety and relief issues to the longer term rebuilding needs," said Kelly Caffarelli, president, The Home Depot Foundation. "The immediate clean up needs are immense, and we know that the needs will continue as it will take some time to restore the impacted areas.  We are thankful to have the opportunity to work with The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee to assist those in need now and to support these communities as they rebuild in a healthy, sustainable way."

The Home Depot Foundation is also working with Hands On Nashville to organize more than 70 Team Depot volunteers to work on community clean-up projects next week.  This activity will allow the company's associates to contribute their time and expertise to directly benefit their communities.  The Foundation is donating $15,000 to Hands On Nashville to support ongoing volunteer clean-up projects.
