Home Depot holds Orange Door campaign

Initiative raises funds for Abbotsford Community Services

The Home Depot Canada’s Abbotsford store has launched its Orange Door fundraising campaign in support of Abbotsford Community Services (ACS).

Until July 2, customers can donate $2 at the store’s checkout in exchange for an orange paper door.

All donations will help ACS provide youth with a safe place to stay and the support to achieve their personal goals.

“In neighbourhoods across Canada, kids as young as 13 are experiencing homelessness for the first time,” said Jeff Kinnaird, chair of The Home Depot Canada Foundation and president of The Home Depot Canada.

“Together, we can shine a light on this serious social issue and inspire our friends, family and neighbours to take action to help.”

Last year, the campaign raised almost $7,800 for ACS.

The Orange Door Project was established with the goal of eliminating youth homelessness in Canada. A total of 182 stores are taking part in this year’s campaign.
