The Ktunaxa Nation and the Cranbrook Home Depot are once again teaming up to raise money for homeless and at risk of homeless people in the Cranbrook area.

Starting on May 28 and lasting until July 2, every $2 donation at the Cranbrook Home Depot goes to Operation Street Angel through the Orange Door Project.

Last year, the Cranbrook Home Depot was one of the top three in terms of donations given versus store transactions in all Canada and had donations raised matched by Home Depot of Canada. This year, Home Depot of Canada will once again match the donations raised at the top three stores.

This is the second year in a row that the Cranbrook Home Depot has chosen Operation Street Angel as the beneficiary of its Orange Door Project. Last year through this partnership, over $15,000 was raised with the proceeds being used to renovate Operation Street Angel’s new location at 46-17th Avenue South.

Operation Street Angel is a program initiated by the Ktunaxa Nation that provides services to homeless and vulnerable populations in the Cranbrook area including hot nutritious meals, nurse practitioner and mental health services, advocacy, employment and justice services.
