A few weeks ago, I got a call from Tim who works at Home Depot in Austintown. He said that they wanted to donate a whole house generator valued at $10K to a veteran that has conditions that make electricity mandatory for survival. He said he had called other veteran agencies and whoever found the best candidate would get the generator.
We told them about a Vietnam veteran suffering from conditions from Agent Orange, who had to be on oxygen 24/7. The veteran’s name is Michael. Michael met Bob Julian, our services director, at the Home Depot in Boardman with a cargo van and Home Depot loaded the generator into his van. Michael has a family member that is an electrician, so he got it installed for free as well.
This incredible gift from Home Depot will give this grateful veteran peace of mind when a storm rolls through or any other electrical issue. We are so grateful to have been a part of this very rewarding day. Congratulations Michael and thank you Home Depot!!
