Sometimes, offering a “Thank You” does not seem like enough to express our deep, heartfelt gratitude when volunteers truly go above, beyond, and out of their way to help us!
So, all at ABCCM and the Veterans Restoration Quarters want to send a great big, incredibly huge THANK YOU to all 388 people from Home Depot who came from all over the country – and even from Canada on Wednesday, October 24 for a Home Depot Service Day at the Veterans Restoration Quarters (VRQ). Because of the generosity, sacrifices and hard work, the lobby of the VRQ has been renovated with new floors, furniture, ceiling tiles, and a make-over of the front desk.
In addition, the Azalea Community Training Services (ACTS) Building is being re-commissioned. This is huge! Once the ACTS Building is back in service, we will once again be able to house life-skills and other vital classes to nearly 1000 veterans and civilians each year!
Home Depot volunteers also built gazebos, fences, benches and a walking trail that covers the perimeter of the VRQ campus. These volunteers also erected a greenhouse in our garden, and gave us 5 storages sheds. And the list literally goes on! It is because of gracious people like our friends at Home Depot that we are able to help transform the lives of hundreds of people each year. You are so special to all the Veterans who were truly touched by your generous gift. The staff and volunteers will be singing your praises along with the Veterans for many years to come!
