Home Depot volunteers renovate Memory Home on Lake Villa campus
Earlier this month, 30 volunteers from Home Depot stores in Niles, Waukegan, Round Lake, Mundelein, Gurnee, West Niles and Vernon Hills donated over 85 hours of service to One Hope United. The volunteers renovated the Memory Home, one of two residential homes for boys in the CARE program on the Lake Villa campus. On November 6, the volunteers primed the bedrooms, living and dining room and two offices and installed drywall in the kitchen. The next day they painted the rooms and hung cabinets in the kitchen. The giving continued with donated food and project materials from Noodles & Co in Gurnee, Dunkin Donuts in Antioch, Galati’s in Lake Villa, Starbucks and Julie’s Coffee in Lake Villa. The Home Depot volunteers will continue to work at Memory Home for the next few weeks to finish up the project.
Thanks to Ravi Bagri, Melody Lukaszewski and Mark Griffin, all form the Gurnee Home Depot for organizing this project!
