The Home Depot

The Home Depot
The Home Depot continues to increase its support of KaBOOM!, its largest non-profit partner whose vision is to create a great place to play within walking distance of every child in North America. Last year, Home Depot's associates helped propel that vision by building 102 playgrounds for communities in need. Since 1996, Home Depot associates have built over 250 playgrounds in partnership with KaBOOM!.

KaBOOM!'s flexible model allows The Home Depot to bring this meaningful service initiative to any of the over 1900 local communities that our stores serve. The projects offer a unique opportunity to galvanize a community as store associates work side by side with members of the local community on a tangible structure that will have a lasting positive impact for the neighborhood. The impact reaches beyond the playground structure as the community gains confidence in addressing local needs and issues on its own.
