Volunteers transform home for local veterans

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A house that helps serve local veterans has been transformed thanks to dozens of volunteers.

It’s part of the Home Depot’s fifth annual Celebration of Service Campaign to help veterans nationwide.

The Newton House is located on the near south side on Talbot Street. Volunteers will spend the day painting, installing new toilets, vanities and floors, remodeling the kitchen and common areas making them easier for residents to get around.

Hoosiers Veterans and families help select the recipient of the rehabbed home.

HVAF has 15 properties around Indiana, including homes and apartment complexes. In addition to Team Depot’s efforts, The Home Depot Foundation also will donate up to $1 million to veteran causes.
