The Home Depot Foundation Commits $1 Million to Harvey Relief Efforts

August 28, 2017

As dangerous conditions continue to threaten communities in Texas and Louisiana, The Home Depot Foundation today pledged $1 million to support Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts.

The commitment includes contributions to several nonprofit partners that specialize in both short-term relief and rebuilding needs, including American Red Cross, Salvation Army, Convoy of Hope, Operation Blessing and Team Rubicon. The Home Depot will also mobilize its army of Team Depot volunteers to help in the cleanup effort and deliver recovery supplies to the hardest hit areas.

“Our hearts and full support go out to our communities, customers and associates that are being impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation.

Home Depot associates who need emergency financial assistance due to Hurricane Harvey are encouraged to contact The Homer Fund, the Foundation’s employee assistance program.
