The VFW Post 7916 in Occoquan got some serious upgrades, thanks to a $2,500 grant from Home Depot.
According to a release, an “army” of Home Depot employees visited the VFW location last week, to improve the infrastructure of the Post’s hall and community space.
“Twenty Home Depot volunteers came and put in a ceiling for the Post 7916 storeroom, replaced the floor in the upstairs kitchen, painted the stairway to the upstairs, and painted the 2nd floor kitchen. All of the work was done in one day,” stated a release.
The upgrades were done with a $2,500 grant that VFW Post 7916 received from the Home Depot Foundation. This was welcome funding, as the 100-year old building is a challenge for the organization to maintain, according to a release.
The post home is a 100-year-old building that is a challenge for a not-for-profit veteran service organization to maintain.
“We are thrilled at the tremendous outpouring of generosity and patriotism displayed by the Home Depot Foundation and the Regional Associates from several local Home Depot stores. The coordinated efforts and talent of this cadre demonstrates a commitment to the community we all live and work,” stated Post Commander Chuck Wilson in a release.
“Our associates are invigorated to serve those who have served. We are honored to have met and provided this service to the men and woman of VFW Post 7916,” stated Home Depot Store 4641 Manager and Project Coordinator Jason Alexander in a release.
