Amber Lowe and Mel Tackett, Holmes graduates and employees of the Crescent Springs Home Depot, are responsible for what started out as a store event but turned into a huge community project.
The duo organized a school supply drive for Sixth District Elementary School and ended up collecting a stage full of items.
Donations poured in from Home Depot stores in Kentucky and Cincinnati, District #291, store employees from all stores, customers who shop at Home Depot stores, local contractors, Meier in Florence, Crossroads Church in Florence, First Christian Church in Covington, Sams Club, and Target. Donations are still coming in from other businesses.
Sixth District and Home Depot will hand out many of the supplies at Dolphin Fest, Thursday, August 8 from 4:30-6:30 p.m..
Be sure to stop and thank Home Depot for their generous donation to our students.
Many thanks to Felicia Lynam, Wade Maurer, Jessica Barlow, Teresa Davis, Paul Hasitsch, and Emily Blom who also helped with the collection, organization, and delivery of items.
