On Wednesday, March 28th, Habitat for Humanity Coachella Valley (HFHCV) and its partners, The Home Depot Foundation, The City of Indio and Coachella Valley Housing Coalition, brought over 400 Home Depot volunteers, including vendors and executives, to work on several exciting major projects in Indio.
Beginning around 8:30 a.m., groups of volunteers constructed two houses designated for veteran families. One house is located on a lot at Mountain View Avenue, and the second is at Orange Grove Avenue.
Another group of volunteers helped with exterior renovations on eleven existing homes in the neighborhood. A third group of volunteers constructed children’s playhouses and outdoor furniture for families at March Air Force Base’s veterans housing. The day wrapped up with a festive gathering for all volunteers at Yucca Park in Indio.
Dave Thornton, Executive Director of HFHCV says: “This massive program is the result of commitment on the part of all partners working together to address the need for affordable housing in Riverside County and to allow existing homeowners in need to remain in their homes.”
