We are in the final week of the Home Depot Foundation's Aprons in Action program. As many of you are already aware, the Veterans Guest House received $25,000.00 based on community engagement during the month of February. I believe that the money will be in the form of upgrades on their already amazing and helpful facility, which will really go a long way. Because they won that award, they were immediately placed in the running for a $250,00.00 award, competing against all of the other winners for the last year.
If you vote, you'll see that they are way, way ahead of their next closest non-profit, but none of us should be comfortable with that. In fact, I spoke with the Director of the Guest House last week, and she shared my opinion that we cannot win this competition by enough. She said that if they are able to win this, the whole $250,000.00, they will be in a completely different position heading into this next fiscal year than they ever have been before. That's an exciting prospect for a group that does as much great work as they do.
Go here and vote now, and then do so again every 24 hours until the end of the week.
