Boys and Girls Clubs gets funding help from Home Depot

Goal is to eliminate youth homelessness

Home Depot is again participating in a national one-month fundraising campaign to support of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Red Deer and District.

Customers can now donate $2 at the store’s checkout in exchange for an orange paper door until July 2. Donations will help the clubs provide programs and services for children, youth and families in Red Deer and area.

The Boys and Girls Clubs of Red Deer and District provides programs and services for children, youth and families regardless of social or financial barriers. The 49th Street Youth Shelter has been providing accommodation to youth in crisis since 1992

The Orange Door Project was established with the goal of eliminating youth homelessness in Canada. Some 182 Home Depot Canada stores are taking part in this year’s campaign by selling paper orange doors in-store, and helping local charities complete renovation projects.

The Orange Door Project in-store fundraising campaign has raised more than $6.6 million since 2007. In 2016, the store raised $4,690 for the Red Deer Boys and Girls Clubs.
