Little Acts of Love receives $20,268 grant to serve Stouchsburg veterans

The Home Depot Foundation has awarded a grant of $20,268 to local nonprofit Little Acts of Love. The grant will provide updates to the Liberty Square Home in Stouchsburg, PA located in western Berks County which provides a place to call home for veterans.

The current residents have served in the Army, Navy and Air Force through the Vietnam and Gulf Wars. Soon they will receive new windows in their bedrooms and the remainder of their home in time to ward off the coldest of the winter season and increase energy efficiency.

Partnered with The Home Depot of Lebanon, Team Depot, the associate volunteer force, will also work on improving the exterior areas and gardens.

“We are profoundly grateful for the generosity of The Home Depot Foundation and their commitment to serve our veterans. We are also thankful for the support of The Home Depot Lebanon Team Depot volunteers, who are committed to the veterans at Liberty Square,” said Alice Moyer, Executive Director of Little Acts of Love. This is the third project serving the veterans who call Liberty Square their home.

Little Acts of Love, a local non-profit, provides home repairs to eligible elderly, low income, disabled and veteran homeowners of the Greater Reading Community.
