Veterans can also receive referrals to other assistance such as health care, housing solutions, employment, substance use treatment and mental health counseling. They are collaborative events, coordinated between local VA Medical Centers, government agencies, community-based homeless service providers, and other community partners. Village for Vets and Brentwood School are partnering to coordinate volunteers for this event. They will sign up approximately 300 volunteers to make the day a success.

WHAT:  On Saturday, Oct. 28, The Home Depot Foundation will partner with the 1887 Fund to transform the Superintendent's Home, one of five historic buildings on the campus of the West Los Angeles Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Center. Once completed, the VA will offer training programs and other activities for veterans in the building. More than 45 members of Team Depot, The Home Depot’s associate-led volunteer force, will complete the work on their day off.

This project in Los Angeles is part of The Home Depot’s annual Celebration of Service campaign to improve the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families. Giving back to veterans is personal to The Home Depot, as more than 35,000 of the company’s associates have served in the military. As part of the campaign, The Home Depot is encouraging the nation to “Choose to Serve” those who served the country. To learn how to get involved in your community, visit CelebrationOfService.com.

WHERE: VA Building 33, 11303 Wilshire Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90073
WHEN:  Saturday, Oct. 28 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

About 1887 Fund
Following an 1887 act of congress, Arcadia Bandini de Baker and Senator John P. Jones donated 300 acres of what is now L.A.’s west side to be used exclusively as the Pacific Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. Through the 1887 Fund, we are helping to bring this sacred place back to its roots as a dignified, safe, comfortable, soothing and proud resource—a home—for the support of Veterans who have earned and deserve nothing but the best our nation can provide.
