Warehouse for flood victims overwhelmed with community need

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) — It’s time for Juan Meza to get to work, rebuilding the bare bones of his home hit by flooding on Jan. 22.

“It’s a lot of work,” Meza said. “Hanging up the drywall, having to get the stuff from Home Depot.”

Although the reconstruction is far from finished, Meza, his son, and his brother are staying here. A neighbor gave them some mattresses to sleep on but they don’t have the money for furniture. Meza hopes to receive donations from this warehouse filled with home supplies for flood victims.

“Just so we can have some kind of furniture in the house and have it feel like home,” Meza said.

The warehouse is run and funded by a group of nonprofits. It officially opened Monday, but Meza and other victims ABC 10News spoke to have struggled to get a hold of them.

Building Tranquility: The Home Depot Foundation Joins Forces To Address PTSD Struggles for Army Veteran

Published 14 hours ago

Submitted by The Home Depot

The Home Depot Foundation and HandsOn Greater Phoenix volunteers work on a veterans home.

Originally published on Built From Scratch

Zakary Ferroni served in the U.S. Army from 2003 to 2012, and today, he grapples with the lasting effects of his service in the form of post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD). This makes it difficult for him to work; his husband, Joe, currently supports the household.

The Home Depot Foundation and HandsOn Greater Phoenix recently teamed up as part of the 2023 Operation Surprise campaign to help Zakary and Joe reclaim their outdoor space. The ultimate goal was to provide a calming, tranquil space to help manage his symptoms and offer some financial relief.

More than 100 volunteers from Team Depot, Home Depot’s associate volunteer force, helped revamp landscaping, upgrade irrigation, paint the home exterior and add outdoor furniture. The team also rebuilt the firepit, replaced broken fencing and made garage upgrades. Zakary and Joe were

Megastores may be declining, but the DIY scene is thriving | News

Habitat for Humanity Tucson’s HabiStore may not be the first business you think of when searching for a home improvement megastore.

The 18,000-square-foot building on Grant and Fairview mainly serves as a donation center for surplus or reusable building materials that go toward helping Habitat for Humanity’s volunteers build affordable housing for low-income families.

But it also operates as a retail outlet, selling a lot of the donated stuff the builders don’t use — furniture, appliances, building materials, tools and hardware — at discounted prices. Those funds are then used to finance the nonprofit’s work.

While not exactly a Home Depot or Lowe’s, the HabiStore, along with other community-supported do-it-yourself centers, is where America’s home improvement boom, already waning for the megastores, is sending some welcome aftershocks.

“When the lockdown happened in 2020, everybody was at home and suddenly home projects became a priority,” said Tanna Johnson, the Tucson affiliate’s

Home Depot sales dip, but company says long-term outlook good

ATLANTA — Home Depot on Tuesday announced another quarter of declining sales, but it was a dip that was expected as the company works through what officials called a post-pandemic “settling.”

The retail behemoth reported sales of $42.9 billion for the past three months, down 2.0% from the same quarter during the previous year. Net earnings during the quarter were $4.7 billion, or $4.65 per share, down from $5.2 billion, or $5.05 per share, a year earlier.

“We look at 2023 as a year of moderation after the explosive growth we had in the last few years,” said Ted Decker, chief executive, during a teleconference with analysts and reporters.

Earlier this year, the company projected that its sales this year will be between 2% and 5% of the previous year’s revenue, while earnings per share drop between 7% and 13%. Officials Tuesday reaffirmed that prediction.

Aug 15 (Reuters) – Home Depot (HD.N) on Tuesday posted better-than-expected quarterly results, cemented by Americans’ steady spending on small-scale projects around their homes even as they sharply cut back on larger remodeling and renovation.

Shares of the company, which announced a new $15 billion share repurchase program, rose about 1%, with the second quarter benefiting from a recapture of seasonal sales lost earlier this year due to a damp start to Spring.

The top U.S. home-improvement chain’s results come ahead of reports from Walmart (WMT.N) and Target (TGT.N) later this week, with investors focusing on discretionary spending trends as customers battle sticky inflation and higher borrowing costs.

Home Depot’s quarterly customer transactions drop of 1.8% improved from the prior quarter, driven by higher sales of items including
