The Home Depot’s Rexdale store has raised donations for Youth Without Shelter through its Orange Door Project fundraising campaign. Between Sept. 1 and Oct. 9 Home Depot customers supported the campaign by donating $2 in exchange for paper orange doors, with the full $2 benefiting YWS.
The Orange Door Project was established with the goal of eliminating youth homelessness in Canada. 182 Home Depot Canada stores took part in this year’s campaign by selling paper orange doors in-store, and by rolling up their sleeves to help local charities complete renovation projects.
Across Canada, the 2016 Orange Door Project campaign raised $1.15 million with 100 per cent of donations benefiting youth-serving organizations.
