Today 40 Team Depot volunteers are out in Skyway, helping Louella, the widow of an Army veteran, Alex. Louella married her husband, Alex Honory, in 1989. Alex was a veteran who served in the Army and later went to work at the SeaTac Airport. The Honory’s bought their current home in 2001, but since Alex passed away from a stroke in 2009, Louella has had a hard time keeping up with the maintenance of her home. Louella's granddaughter is currently serving in the Army.
Team Depot volunteers are tackling a list of home improvements, including new flooring, new kitchen appliances, cleaning, yard work, safety improvements, and more. Earlier this morning, First Gentleman, Mike Gregoire, stopped by to meet Louella and thank the volunteers.
Stay tuned for more updates! RTS sends a big thank you to The Home Depot Foundation and Team Depot volunteers for making today's project possible and for supporting the RTS Veterans Program.
