Helping Hands

Fall has arrived and there is no better way to celebrate the change in season than to enjoy the sight of some beautiful autumn scenery! UCP of Long Island participants got that opportunity on September 18th.

Volunteers from Home Depot of Smithtown built two new 10-foot flowerbeds in front of the UCP of Long Island's Marcus Facility. Beautiful mums, donated by Home Depot, were then planted in the flowerbeds with the help of individuals.

Chris Longstreet, Home Depot Operations Manager and Team Depot Community Captain led the project. Team Depot is a program in which over 350,000 Home Depot employees volunteer in their communities. "I loved seeing the smiles on the participants faces," he explained. "UCP of Long Island is an amazing organization with a phenomenal staff who really care about the people they serve."

At the end of the day, individuals expressed their sincere gratitude. The participants presented the volunteers with a beautiful poster and treated them to a special performance of New York, New York by Frank Sinatra.

"These guys are extremely talented and inspiring," Longstreet smiled.
