BALTIMORE — On Thursday, the Home Depot Foundation and the Baltimore Station renovated their local facilities to help homeless veterans and their families.

The Baltimore Station is a residential and outpatient treatment program that serves veterans to help them regain self-sufficiency, permanent housing and sustainable income. More than 300 local Home Depot volunteers landscaped, made indoor repairs and upgrades and transformed the residents baseball field.

"The men actually live with us here...and do this for us means the world to our staff and means even more to the men because they're seeing the community care about them," said Kim Callari, Director of Development and Communication.

This is part of the Home Depots 9th annual Celebration of Service campaign.

Since 2011, the Home Depot Foundation has transformed more than 43,000 homes and facilities.
