Regina Home Depot stores have launched their Orange Door fundraising campaign and funds raised will be directed to the city’s Street Culture Program.
Until July 2, customers can donate $2 at the checkout in exchange for a paper orange door.
Dustin Browne is the Executive Director of the Street Culture Project. He says it’s impressive how far this funding goes in order to help kids get off the street.
Browne adds that when the country’s youth are given some opportunity and direction — especially if they’re homeless — it makes an enormous difference.
“I do see amazing things happen out of the work that is being done,” said Browne. “I’ve seen a number of youth who are living on the streets with no resources and no support be provided those things, and then they’ve chosen to pull themselves out of it.”
The next time you are at Home Depot, be sure to buy a $2 orange door, which will support local housing and life-skills development programs here in the Queen City.
