BOCA RATON, FLA.—Q.E.P. employees, along with their families and friends, recently joined with the veterans residing at the Stand Down House to renovate several buildings and refresh the exterior landscaping.
Stand Down House assists and houses homeless veterans who are struggling to return to civilian life.
During the renovation, the media room, dining room and offices were painted and more than 1,600 square feet of new flooring was laid. Outside, more than 625 linear feet of concrete edging were installed. The group also joined to replace the broken concrete stoops in the parking lot and restripe the entire parking area.
“One of QEP’s core values is to honor those who have served our country,” said Len Gould, president. “The Stand Down House was in need of a lot of basic repair and remodeling. This is our business and we were happy to help. It says a lot about the commitment of QEP employees who volunteered to make this happen.”
The project was a coordinated effort with The Home Depot Foundation’s Celebration of Service campaign, which is in the midst of a three-year veterans focus.
