"Our neighbors in the Gulf Coast need our help," said Jeff Towers, chief development officer at the American Red Cross. "The Home Depot responded to this call, enabling the Red Cross to provide care, comfort and compassion to the people affected by Hurricane Gustav and future storms. I want to thank The Home Depot Foundation for using the Red Cross as their conduit of compassion."
Separately, The Homer Fund, a charity for The Home Depot associates in need of emergency financial assistance, donated $500,000 to 650 associates and their families within the first 48 hours of Gustav's landfall. On Saturday, volunteers from the Company activated the Homer Fund call center to respond to and assist impacted associates with their immediate needs of safe housing and other daily essentials.
