Building Surrey, Coquitlam and Langley one hammer at a time

Proceeds to The Home Depot Canada Foundation helps fund affordable housing in local communities.

Starting this week, customers shopping at the Surrey, Langley and Coquitlam Home Depot store can donate $2 to purchase a “paper hammer.” All proceeds raised will support Tri-City Transitions Society, an organization that provides help and hope to women and families who have been impacted by violence and abuse in the Tri-City communities.

The Home Depot Canada Foundation is committed to supporting the housing needs of Canada’s youth. Running until July 3, all proceeds raised through the campaign will benefit local housing charities, including many that provide housing support to youth-in-need.

“The Foundation believes safe, stable, affordable housing matters,” said Peg Hunter, chair, The Home Depot Canada Foundation. “Working together and supporting affordable housing, we can help build brighter futures and stronger communities for everyone.”

The Tri-City Transitions offers counselling and groups for women who have experienced sexual assault, relationship or childhood abuse.

Quick Facts:

• The Buy a Hammer, Build Our Community campaign has helped more than 250 local charitable organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, Nipissing Transition House and My Friends House in Collingwood, to name a few.

• More than 1,250,000 paper hammers have been sold across Canada.

• One hundred per cent of all funds raised by the community stay in the community.

• The Home Depot Canada Foundation has invested more than $10 million in the development of affordable housing and community improvement projects across Canada.
