We are excited to tell you about a donation program we are coordinating for Home Depot called Framing Hope. This program is designed to donate excess merchandise from The Home Depot stores to organizations involved in housing and shelter. There are 18 stores available in the Greater New York City area. The stores are located in the following cities/towns: New York, the Bronx, Brewster, Hawthorne, Mohegan Lake, Port Chester, Yonkers, Elmont, Long Island City, Brooklyn, Flushing, and Jamaica.
The items available for donation may include building materials and supplies, plumbing products, cleaning items, sinks, showers, and assorted household and seasonal goods. Specific items, including quantity, type and/or assortment cannot be guaranteed. Ladders, hazmat materials, appliances and live goods are not eligible and will NOT be included in the donations. Please note that the Framing Hope program can involve large items so ample transportation and storage are required to participate.
