The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation
The Home Depot Center has made a strong commitment to giving back to our local community. In order to support local community-based organizations that improve the educational and recreational opportunities available to young people, we have established The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation that, in association with other AEG-related organizations and foundations, has provided more than $5 million to Southern California charities and programs.
The Home Depot Center Charitable Foundation was established to provide financial and in-kind support for educational, recreational and social service programs which improve the lives of young people in the Greater Southern California region. The foundation has a particular focus on serving the area immediately surrounding The Home Depot Center, located in the City of Carson.
