Team Depot and HandsOn Greater Phoenix volunteers worked together to beautify Taft Elementary School in Mesa, Arizona. Volunteers planted trees, built benches, painted a mural and refreshed the school’s de-escalation room. 

On Saturday, Jan. 22, The Home Depot Foundation joined New York Cares to complete several projects for students at a school in the South Bronx. 

 Team Depot and New York Cares’ volunteers worked together to build a new jungle-themed library. They cleared out a classroom, assembled shelves and furniture and arranged the room in preparation for the library books.

I felt that it was necessary to have a library so the children can have the same access to books that I had growing up." Luis Torres, Principal School 55 o close it due to funding needs.
