Home Depot announced Wednesday their involvment in completing the Cisco's Dog Park and Veterans Memorial Walk at Bryant Commons.
Veterans Memorial Walk and the dog park are part of The Home Depot Foundation's committment to improving the lives of veterans nationwide.
On Thursday Oct 26. more than 250 volunteers from The Home Depot and its supply chain vendor partners will complete the Bryant Commons Park for veterans, military families and the Liberty County community.
Volunteer support is needed to create the first veteran memorial and service dog park in Hinesville, Georgia, to honor and support the area rich in military history.
Locally, Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield support more than 56,000 personnel and the area is home to more than 35,000 active duty family members. These military families and veterans will be honored with a new American-flag-lined Memorial Walk as a patriotic memorial and place of pride. Volunteers will also create a dog park and training facility for K-9 Battle Buddies, a nonprofit committed to transforming rescue dogs into service dogs for veterans with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Volunteer projects will include:
-Finishing the "Veterans Walk" by planting thousands of shrubs around military seals and flag poles.
-Building "Cisco's Dog Park" and cannine obstacle training courses.
-Creating a playground for local families to enjoy the outdoors.
-Beautifying the "Serenity Trail" for vetrans surrounding a pond with shade structures and benches.
