( KTRS ) Several homes in the city of Ferguson are getting a touch up thanks to Home Depot.
The City of Ferguson announced Tuesday that Home Depot on New Halls Ferry Road, will donate materials needed to repair six homes in the city. Employees from the Florissant and Maryland Heights chains are also donating time to help with the jobs.
The project was created by Councilwoman Ella Jones and State Representative Sharon Pace. It began after they met with the Ferguson store manager Steven Esparza. Mr. Esparza contacted the corporate office in Atlanta, Georgia to receive approval and got it.
City Manager De’Carlon Seewood said “We’re just happy that our residents are going to benefit from their generosity,”
Ferguson Mayor James Knowles III said “This certainly is a good faith effort, by Councilwoman Ella Jones and State Representative Sharon Pace,” adding “I’m sure the homeowners benefiting from this project will be greatly appreciative.”
Any residents interested in volunteering for the Home Depot repairs, please arrive at the Ferguson Community Center at 8 a.m. on Thursday, October 27.
