Shelter Upgrades by Home Depot and SMUD

SMUD partnered with Home Depot to bring a few added additions to Wind’s TAY shelter this month. Thanks to a grant written by Sacramento Dream Center, Home Depot was able to purchase a large shed, flower beds, a sink, new microwave, and a large barbecue grill for the Shelter and Transitional Housing Program. Home Depot worked with SMUD to remove the bushes and shrubs in the backyard to make space for the shed and installed the sink and flower bed in the backyard.

In addition, they constructed a place for bicycle repairs to be completed, as many of the youth use bikes as their primary form of transportation. Lastly, SMUD generously donated a brand new water heater to the Adolescent shelter to replace the old failing one that had been installed almost 2 decades previously! Good Day Sacramento came out to witness and film the event which was broadcast live on television.
