HD Supply is working to better the lives of children by providing increased access to quality education and health service because we believe the foundation of wellbeing is laid in early childhood, and investing in children can yield positive benefits to individuals as well as communities.
At HD Supply, we believe education is a critically important investment; it helps reduce poverty, boosts economic growth and increases an individual’s ability to lead a healthy life. We support the education of children in the local communities in which we live and work by investing time and monetary resources in organizations and programs that strive to foster educational excellence. For example, HD Supply is partnering with Junior Achievement and Action Ministries to provide educational opportunities to children.
Every summer, HD Supply associates in Atlanta, Georgia, take part in Action Ministries’ Smart Lunch Smart Kid Program, which serves children who are at risk of food insecurity during the summer months when free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch meals are not available through a school program. HD Supply Atlanta associates serve low-income communities across the Atlanta Metro area by preparing, packing, decorating and delivering hundreds of lunches right to the children in need. In the summer of 2019, 660 lunches were prepared by HD Supply associates for Atlanta-area children.
Investing in children’s health can improve cognitive ability, emotional development, and school participation. HD Supply has a company-wide partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to support health programs through financial donations and participation in local events. We also contribute to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the Ronald McDonald House.
Every year, HD Supply associates participate in the nationwide St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer across the United States. Additionally, the Construction & Industrial business holds a pin-up campaign every October to raise funds for St. Jude and a variety of events throughout the year that include the Customer Appreciation Golf Tournament, Supplier Appreciation Events and more.
