JEFFERSON COUNTY — The Home Depot Foundation has announced an $85,000 grant for Three Hots and a Cot to complete rehab and renovations on nine properties that offer permanent supportive housing to 44 veterans and their families in Birmingham.
The grant was awarded as part of the latest round of grants from The Home Depot Foundation – totaling $3.9 million – in support of its five-year, $80 million commitment to ensure every veteran has a safe place to call home.
“Home Depot and their local associates have been a huge part of our success in serving our veterans here in Birmingham,” said Three Hots and a Cot President J.D. Simpson. “Whenever we have a housing project – the Home Depot orange shirts are never far away. We are honored and humbled to be partnered with such an incredible organization like Home Depot.”
Simpson said all nine properties are in the Birmingham metro area. The Ryan Winslow Veterans Center is located on Old Springville Road in the Chalkville area. Part of the grant will go toward improvements to that location.
