In our series about companies that support our troops, Home Depot is the focus for today. Home Depot is a large company that has stores in all 50 states, China, Puerto Rico, The Virgin Islands, Mexico, and Canada.
Home depot has hired more than 60,000 veterans since 2004. They launched Project Homefront in 2003, which is a national project to help military families with home repair while members of the family served in Iraq. They have donated money, supplies, and labor to help military families.
Home Depot has earned several awards for their commitment to our veterans and active troops. The Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve awarded Home Depot with the Homefront Award in 2003 for its support of associates called to active duty. Home Depot gave extended and enhanced leave of absence benefits to more than 1800 associates. Home Depot was also listed in the “Top 25 Military-Friendly Employers” by GI Jobs Magazine. They were #1 on the list in 2004. They were also named in the “Top 10 Military Friendly Employers” by Military Spouse Magazine for 2007, 2008, and 2009.
Home Depot has a great reputation for hiring:
- Veterans, including those with service-connected disabilities
- Separating active duty service members
- National guard members
- Military spouses
The thing I have always loved about Home Depot is their fantastic customer service. But, now that I know about their great support of our troops, I am even happier to give them my support. God bless America. Keep our troops safe. And thanks for companies like Home Depot.
