Credit Where Credit Is Due

When you arrive at a disaster zone and begin debris removal, roof patching, window boarding and chainsawing, the supplies deplete alarmingly fast.  Before you know it, you need tarps, roofing nails, hammers, lumber, and your chains need sharpening.  That’s where a generous partnership with The Home Depot Foundation comes in extremely handy.  Team Rubicon was told by Home Depot Store Manager Joe Calder to make a list of necessities and head over the Lancaster store to rendezvous with Charlie Webster.  “He’ll take care of you.”

Done and done.  Charlie took a look at our list of must-haves and guided us on a quick tour of the cavernous aisles as we filled a shopping cart and two lumber carts with supplies to help Team Rubicon continue its service to the residents of Lancaster.  A lot of good came from that whirlwind shopping spree, and a deep, heartfelt thanks goes out to the Lancaster, Texas Home Depot and The Home Depot Foundation.  We look forward to our continued partnership as we meet up again with Team Depot today in Arlington.
