Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Team Depot Brightens Veterans’ Lives

Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans would like to extend a huge "thank you" to our friends with Team Depot. Last month, 45 volunteers from eight different stores lent their time and expertise at The Cottages at Mile Branch, part of our workforce housing facility in Covington, by landscaping soon-to-be completed family homes. Of the 25 new homes being built at The Cottages, 13 are reserved for veterans and their families.

Also in attendance at the volunteer event were veteran Larry, his wife JoeAnn, and their grandson, Kardeair, who enjoyed seeing the progress, and will be moving into one of the homes soon!
