Signature program:

Team Depot
The Home Depot's associate volunteer program, Team Depot, was formalized in 1992 as a way to support the communities where the associates live and work. Every store has a Team Depot program and each store works with a network of local and national nonprofit partners to build programs that meet the local needs of the community. Whether it's building a playground for children, repairing homes for the elderly, helping inner-city teens learn job skills, educating customers about energy usage or shoring up an over-flowing river, making a difference helps The Home Depot remain true to its progressive corporate culture. Team Depot supports all of the company's major initiatives, and associates give back 2 million volunteer hours every year.
