ATLANTA, May 5, 2022
/PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Saturday, May
7th, The Home Depot's Kids Workshops will return
to in-store programming in U.S. stores. The workshops will take
place on the first Saturday of each month, offering families an
opportunity to complete DIY-projects together.
To maintain customer and associate safety, The Home Depot moved
all Workshop activities to virtual offerings in 2020. Since going
virtual, The Home Depot has donated more than 1.6 million workshop
kits to individuals, community events and more than 100 nonprofit
organizations through The Home Depot Foundation.
In addition to bringing families together, The Home Depot's Kids
Workshops create a hands-on learning experience that sparks
creativity, promotes problem-solving and encourages social
interaction for the youngest generation of DIYers. Each month a new
seasonal-themed workshop will be offered, beginning with a Picket
Fence Planter in May. Upcoming projects include a Constellation
Viewer, Summer Camper and Pencil
Desk Organizer. All tools and materials needed to complete the
Workshop will be available and a Home Depot Associate will be there
to assist families as necessary. Kids in attendance will receive a
kid-sized Home Depot Apron, collectible pin and certificate of
project completion for participation.
"For twenty-five years, the Kids Workshops program has been a
part of The Home Depot's DNA and we are excited to host them again
in our stores," said Ann-Marie
Campbell, Executive Vice President U.S. Stores &
International Operations at The Home Depot. "Kids Workshops have
always been a favorite among our associates. We love that our
workshops can be a bonding moment for families and inspire the
younger generations to build and learn."
In addition to its Kids Workshops offering, The Home Depot also
hosts a variety of online workshops for aspiring doers and
professionals led by our knowledgeable associates and industry
experts, including Homeowner 101 Livestreams, DIY,
Seasonal and Pro Workshops. Through its workshops and
online Project Guides, doers of all skill levels and interests can
learn from the home improvement retailer.
The Kids Workshop program will take place in U.S. Stores from
