Team Depot improves local veteran home 

A local veteran, Bruce Stanley was selected by Team Depot, a volunteer force that helps The Home Depot Foundation improve more than 50,000 veteran homes and facilities. Team Depot painted the exterior of his home as well as provided landscaping to his front and backyard. The city of Mesquite partnered with Team Depot to commemorate Memorial Day and Veterans Day. Stanley is one of many local recipients who have received assistance from Team Depot due to his military service.
