The Orange Door Project is Under Way!
Windsor Residence for Young Men will benefit from Home Depot’s Fundraising Campaign May 30 to June 23, 2019 – Walker and Division Roads Store
The Home Depot Canada’s Walker & Division roads store in Windsor has partnered with The Windsor Residence for Young Men (WRYM) to raise funds in support of local at-risk and homeless youth. Until June 23, customers can donate $2.00 at the store’s checkout or online. If donating online, please be sure to select the Walker & Division store fund “Windsor-7228” in the drop-down menu so that your donation benefits WRYM.
One hundred percent of the funds raised at the Walker & Division roads store (store #7228) in Windsor will benefit the transitional living program for residents of WRYM, which is a charitable organization that supports young men 16 – 24 years of age as they leave homelessness behind to build new lives. WRYM provides a transitional residence and individual counselling while teaching basic life skills such as hygiene, food acquisition and preparation, budgeting, social responsibility and work ethic.
“Our program depends almost entirely on the generosity of the community and so we are very grateful to Home Depot Canada and the Walker & Division store for their support. We can assure donors that WRYM is both effective and efficient – we have a ninety percent success rate – we do not duplicate services of other agencies, and funding goes direct to the program. Our administration is done free of charge by volunteers. So, please do donate!” – Dave Freeman WRYM Board Member
Through The Orange Door Project fundraising campaign, The Home Depot Canada Foundation supports 120 organizations that are committed to preventing and ending youth homelessness across the country.
