THANK YOU TO THE HOME DEPOT FOR THEIR GENEROSITY AND SUPPORT
Encompass Support Services Society benefits from customer donations raised through The Orange Door Project campaign
A large thank you to the Langley Home Depot and the Home Depot Canada Foundation in a very successful 2016 fundraising campaign. In 2016, the Langley Home Depot raised over $11,000.00 to support the Langley Youth Homelessness Initiative.
The Home Depot® Canada Foundation’s fundraising campaign directs 100 per cent of funds raised to local youth-serving organizations
As part of its commitment to help end youth homelessness in Canada, The Home Depot® Canada Foundation launched its annual The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign today, which collects $2 donations from customers and gives 100 per cent of the proceeds to local youth-serving organizations.
Customers shopping in the Langley Home Depot store can donate $2 at the checkout in exchange for a (paper) Orange Door. One hundred per cent of proceeds stay in the community and go to support the housing and life-skills development programs at Encompass Support Services Society. The campaign ran during the month of September 2016.
Encompass Support Services Society is a social service organization that responds to the needs of the Langley community. They provide housing supports to youth through their Youth Homelessness Initiative, youth street outreach workers and their Emergency Receiving Home program.
“Every night in Canada, more than 6,000 youth don’t have a safe place to call home,” said Bill Lennie, chair, board of directors, The Home Depot Canada Foundation and president, The Home Depot Canada. “We believe this has to change. Our associates are passionate about this cause and together with our customers and local, youth-serving charities; we can give vulnerable youth opportunities for a brighter future.”
