CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Salvation Army's Center of Hope is a place where homeless families can find shelter when they need it.  For about 7 or 8 months, part of the shelter has been reserved for homeless veterans and their families.  And if it is about veterans, military or USO Wilson is going to find out more about it.

He was out at the Center of Hope with members of the Home Depot Foundation who were renovating the veterans' area.  Wilson talked with Major Lancaster of the Salvation Army about the Center of Hope and the area they have reserved for helping military members and their family.

The mission of the Home Depot Foundation is to ensure that every veteran has a safe place to call home.  Wilson met Matt who is not only a volunteer with the foundation and an employee at Home Depot, but is an Air Force veteran himself.  Matt talked with Wilson about how important it is to help his fellow vets who are in need.

The Home Depot Foundation will help veterans who are in need of help with projects in their own homes.  If you are a vet and need help with a project or if you are a veteran group that would like to help other veterans in need, contact Team Depot at the Home Depot Foundation website www.homedepotfoundation.org.

Be sure to keep up with Wilson as he will be checking back with the Center of Hope to follow up on their new renovations.
