The Home Depot has grown its military discount program to include all veterans and spouses as a way to further its commitment to the military community. Arguably the world’s largest home improvement store, it hasn’t stopped the company from giving back. In fact, they’ve strapped their give-back boots on even tighter to get into the trenches of serving those who serve.

For the 19th year in a row, The Home Depot was recognized as a Military Friendly© company through its dedication to hire and serve those who’ve worn the uniform. The Military Friendly® Brands designation, one of four components of the Military Friendly® Companies ratings, measures a company’s social and material investment in support of the military and veteran community, including consumer supports and protections. Organizations earning the Military Friendly® Brand designation were evaluated using public data sources, personal feedback from military community members, and responses from VIQTORY’s proprietary survey.

The Home Depot boasts over 35,000 veteran and military spouse employees with plans to grow the number exponentially. On its website, The Home Depot goes into detail about the company’s dedication to assist transitioning veterans. 

Since 2011, it has invested over $400 million dollars in veteran causes and built over 50,000 homes for our nation’s heroes. The company is a champion for ending veteran homelessness and securing safe housing for all veterans in need. 

The Home Depot recently celebrated 10 years of partnership with organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Volunteers of America, Operation Homefront, Semper Fi & America’s Fund, U.S. VETS and so many others.

It’s a promise the company doesn’t take lightly.

The Home Depot President and COO, Ted Decker, reaffirmed the promise in a statement: “We’re proud to expand this Military Discount Benefit for families who have sacrificed so much for our country,” he said. “From our product discount to The Home Depot Foundation’s commitment to veteran causes, our dedication to our servicemen and women has never been stronger.” 

Actively serving, veterans and military spouses can download The Home Depot app on their app store and pre-register for the 10% discount benefit. Doing this means savings not just for those in-person shopping trips, but through the company’s online store as well. 

As you begin planning your winter and spring projects, we hope you’ll consider heading over to The Home Depot to register for your own savings and support this military-first company.
