The Orange Door Project

We're working to end youth homelessness!

Customers shopping in the Nepean, Orleans, Barrhaven, Gloucester, Kanata and South Keys Home Depot stores can donate $2 at the checkout in exchange for a (paper) Orange Door. One hundred per cent of proceeds stay in the community and go to support the housing and life-skills development programs at Youth Services Bureau of Ottawa and National Capital Region YMCA-YWCA Second Stage Youth Housing Program. The campaign runs until July 2, 2015.
