People Working Cooperatively (PWC) Receives $200,000 from The Home Depot Foundation for Veteran Home
People Working Cooperatively (PWC) has received a $200,000 grant from The Home Depot Foundation, which will be used to assist local veterans in need of critical home repairs and accessibility modifications to stay safely in their homes.
“We are grateful to The Home Depot Foundation for their continued support and dedication to the veteran community,” said Chris Owens, Vice President of Development at PWC. “Like Team Depot, PWC is committed to improving the homes and lives of veterans and their families, and these funds will make a substantial impact in the lives of veterans right here in our community.”
There are more than 9,000 veterans over the age of 65 living in poverty in the Tri-State, and nearly 300 veteran households are currently waiting for PWC services such as accessibility modifications and other critical home repairs. In the last four years, PWC has provided services for over 3,000 households of veterans or their surviving spouses.
