Have you been following along the last few months with the service projects I’ve been participating in? To refresh your memory–The Home Depot is committing 50 Million dollars over the next three years to veteran’s non-profit organizations. I was happy to be a part of Stiggy’s Dogs, and Student Housing at OSU. My third and final assignment was equally fun, but much closer to home. I was paired with a local military family stationed at Ft. Knox. Home Depot had shipped me some Christmas decorations to deliver to the family. I sort of felt like Santa dressed in orange instead of a red suit. To my left is Dave, a local Home Depot associate. Front and center is the little man of the house, with his mom and dad. On the right is our Operation Homefront representative Tamara.
The Home Depot sent a Christmas tree, Martha Stewart ornaments, a tree skirt, tree topper, and a really pretty pre-lit wreath.
It was a fun afternoon, I hope you enjoy this video that documents my trip to Ft. Knox.
The Christmas tree is a corner tree. I was quite intrigued with it. In fact I went to my local Home Depot to get one, but they are only available online. I think a corner tree is a great idea for small spaces (which is exactly what I need). The Martha Stewart ornaments are very pretty, and plentiful—in fact too many for this tree.
There were two fellas that showed up from the e’town Home Depot. We’ve already met Dave. Terry (on the right) is the assistant store manager. They were very friendly and invited the Lake family to their store for their Kids Workshop on Saturday mornings. Besides the little guy, Sgt. and Mrs. Lake have a daughter who was at school.

It was a pleasure to meet everyone involved, and a fun afternoon. I appreciate the generosity of The Home Depot toward our servicemen and women, and our veterans.
