Home Depot Grants
Does your organization need skilled labor?
Do you need to train your volunteers even just a little to better assist in rebuilding?
Well, about 10 days ago, I wrote to Home Depot and Lowes to request special classes just for that purpose.
And while Lowes hasn't yet responded, Home Depot has. They won't necessarily incorporate this training into their normal weekly seminars, they do have a great program they call CommUnity Impact Grants Program From what I've read, it allows non-profit orgs to pay someone to train volunteers for community related projects.
AND - you can also request skilled volunteers to assist your efforts - so you kind of get 2 deals for the price of one.
The grants are for up to $3000.
