OGDEN — Volunteers from Home Depot honored a servant of the country by renovating his home.

More than 10 volunteers from The Home Depot’s army of associate volunteers along with other community partners worked at the home of Doug Ferguson, a disabled Vietnam War veteran. This effort in Ogden is part of The Home Depot Foundation’s third annual Celebration of Service campaign, a two-month initiative between September 11 and Veterans Day.

Volunteer projects throughout the day included installing new flooring, drain repair, resealing the foundation of the home and extending steps on the porch.
