We got a shout-out in a corporate social responsibility article

I love how KaBOOM! and its corporate partners are getting recognized for their efforts to make the world a better place. Check out this article, for example:

Creating Corporate Social Responsibility That Makes Sense

Excerpt:

Another ongoing charitable partnership continues with KaBOOM!, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to building playgrounds in underserved neighborhoods such as ones damaged by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Home Depot donates materials and labor toward rebuilding efforts.

Various charitable initiatives are managed throughout the organization. Each store designates an individual Team Depot captain who coordinates charitable efforts within a store. At the district level, which encompasses 10 to 12 area stores, another captain oversees larger initiatives.
