When Stern Village (Trumbull Housing Authority) resident Bob Lewis provided Executive Director, Harriet Polansky with a list of residents interested in playing horseshoes, Polansky considered calling The Home Depot of Trumbull.

“My hope was that The Home Depot of Trumbull would donate the materials to build a horseshoe pit. I never expected them to volunteer to build it for our residents,” she said. Having a horseshoe pit would enable the residents of Stern Village to exercise and socialize. Additional benefits would be increased hand to eye coordination and stability.

Giving back is a fundamental value of The Home Depot and a passion for its associates. Through The Home Depot Foundation and its ongoing partnerships with nonprofit organizations, The Home Depot donates millions of hours, tools and supplies each year to community service projects.

“The residents of Stern Village are excited and looking forward to spending several hours playing horseshoes. We sincerely thank Team Home Depot, Harriet Polansky, her staff and the THA Commissioners for all their help and support,” said Lewis.

Trumbull Housing Authority is always seeking donations and support in a number of areas. If you are interested in becoming a Community Builder by developing a partnership with Stern Village, contact Harriet Polansky, at harriet@sternvillage.com or call 203-261-5740 for details.
