Team Depot Programs


The Team Depot SOP provides detail on how to conduct projects that include planning, beneficiary guidance, and more. There is no limit on the number of volunteers allowed, however, consider the amount of tasks and work needed for a successful project.

The Nonprofit Resource Guide is a helpful tool in locating an organization that can assist any project you choose.


VETERANS - Interior and exterior work on veteran homes, VFWs, and Veteran Service Organizations with projects that include landscaping, painting, wheelchair ramps, flooring and more. Click here for diverse veteran opportunities.
Housing - Interior and exterior work on non-veteran homes, homeless shelters, transitional housing, low-income, and single-family homes that include landscaping, painting, wheelchair ramps, and more
Schools and Youth - Ball-field makeovers, landscaping, PTA organizations, Locke room renovations, teacher’s lounge upgrades, community centers, Boys & Girls Clubs, and more
Disaster Relief - Building Relief Kits, working with nonprofit support to aid distribution
Public Outdoor Spaces - Community garden, parks,/city parks, walking/hiking trails and more


While Veterans remain our primary focus, we are providing guidance in non-veteran areas of interest that include:

  • Trades and Disasters
  • Affordable Housing/Homelessness
  • Schools
  • Community Centers (Food Banks, YMCA etc.)
  • Public Outdoor Spaces (Community gardens and local parks)

These projects have been organic to the Team Depot program and allow associates to engage in spaces they are passionate about.
