The Home Depot in Red Deer is raising money to combat youth homelessness.
Customers can make a $2 donation toward the Boys and Girls Clubs of Red Deer and District during the Orange Door Project fundraising campaign, which ends June 23.
Money raised will buy groceries, mattresses and essential program supplies for the 49th Street Youth Shelter.
“As one of the fastest-growing segments of the homeless population in Canada, youth homelessness is an urgent and complex issue,” said Pam O’Rourke, The Home Depot Canada Foundation board of directors chair.
“We are working together, with our community partners, to help truly understand and address the unique needs of at-risk and homeless youth, so we can help end this cycle.
“That is why 100 per cent of every customer donation goes directly to helping local youth.”
