Home Depot Supports the Troops

I just got back from Home Depot. I usually hate going there for a couple of reasons: first of all, it's usually very crowded. It also annoys me to no end that everything at the Home Depot is written in both English and Spanish, which in my opinion discourages our immigrant population (legal and otherwise) from making the effort to learn English, and thus also discouraging them from integrating into American society.

However, tonight there were no crowds. (From the looks of the parking lots as I drove by, everyone was at Best Buy and Borders.) More importantly, a sign caught my eye when I walked in.

Here's the deal: if you received a Home Depot card for Christmas and redeem it between January 1 and January 28, Home Depot will donate 5% of the value of each card, up to $1 million, to the USO. The money will go toward both the building of new USO facilities and the upkeep of current facilities. Here's the online press release detailing the program.

In case you don't know, the USO provides morale-boosting programs and services for our troops overseas. Think of Bob Hope's legendary visits to the troops over his long career -- they were sponsored by the USO.

So if you received a Home Depot gift card, get off your butt before January 28 and use it! Our troops will thank you for it.

We have Lowe's, but no Home Depot.

A Loew's opened up recently not far from Home Depot here, but I have not visited it yet. Anyone know if Answerman is still around? There was one in Reno when I was growing up.
