The Children’s Home is competing against three other nonprofits nationwide for $25,000 in Home Depot gift cards. The contest ends Feb. 23.
The home has a large number of young children on campus right now, but the playground and recreational equipment are intended for older children. With the $25,000, the home could build two additional play areas for the younger children, and the Home Depot would send volunteers to help perform the work.
The Children’s Home is competing against HandsOn Greater Phoenix in Arizona; the Veterans Guest House in Reno, Nev.; and Volunteers of America Michigan in Southfield, Mich.
The winner of this month’s Home Depot Foundation “Aprons in Action” contest will compete for a grand prize of $250,000 in March with the other monthly winners from the past year.
