ST. PETERSBURG – Last month, 110 Home Depot and Floor & Décor corporate executives and staff descended on Happy Workers Learning Center, 920 19th St. S., St. Petersburg, to give back.
A new strategy for the home improvement executives is to culminate their annual conference by volunteering to a local not profit in the state where they will host their annual conference. The conference attendees were introduced to Happy Workers by their community partner United Way of the Suncoast.
After hearing about Happy Workers through a presentation done by Executive Director Cherie Green, they were hooked. Once they got to the site and received a tour, it was time to work. For five hours volunteers painted the administration building, repaired toys, made minor repairs planted flowers and laid mulch.
Home Depot Executive Tom Hughes and Floor & Décor Executive Cathy Todd vowed their ongoing support for the historic preschool.
