Team members from the West Des Moines, Ankeny and Urbandale Home Depot stores volunteered their time on November 16, 2016 to give the Waukee Legion Hall a bit of a makeover.
"It's part of Home Depot's Celebration of Service - a commitment to serving veterans," said West Des Moines Home Depot Store Director Jasen Randels.
With a grant from the Team Depot Foundation and paint donated by Behr, more than a dozen workers donated their time to improve the Legion Hall. They painted the interior walls, replaced blinds in both the front and back of the building, and made a much needed replacement of the building's back door.
The experts worked quickly, and Jerry Foster with the Waukee American Legion said it gave a boost to improvement plans already in progress.
"We've got a number of things we want to get fixed on the facility. Home Depot came in with their company philosophy of helping vets," said Jerry Foster with the Waukee American Legion. "They asked what we needed. We told them, and it's looking really great now. We're very grateful."
The City of Waukee also donated $2,500 for electrical improvements in August. Foster said they have flooring fixes to make as well, but that things are moving along nicely.
