Corporate Hero: Home Depot, Wausau, WI
The Home Depot has had a very busy year. Almost every month out of the year they were volunteering and helping out in the community any way they could. For example, in April 2011 when a tornado struck Merrill, leaving people's homes damaged and destroyed, Home Depot's response to clean up needs was immediate. They made several deliveries of essential items for clean up: work gloves to prevent cuts and scrapes as homeowners sifted through debris, and trash bags to haul debris and protect and carry salvaged items. They also donated four chain saws to help with tree removal.
The Corporate Hero Award is sponsored by Delta Dental.
