Home Depot Spruces Up Legion Post 331

Posted November 14th 2022

The American Legion Post 331 headquarters in Stone Harbor is now sporting a fresh coat of paint and a series of extensive renovations, thanks to a grant from The Home Depot Foundation.

In August, the foundation awarded Post 331 a grant of $13,200 — excluding the value of the labor to produce the renovations, Legion president Tom McCullough said. The project was completed in early October after just over a week of renovations assisted by dozens of volunteers from The Home Depot Foundation.

McCullough said the renovations included new ceilings, flooring and interior paint, as well as new paved walkways in the outdoor area and additional pavers in the parking lot.

“We are indebted to The Home Depot, local store and The Home Depot Foundation to the highest level,” he said. “What they’re doing for this, is our 10- or 15- or more year wish list that we would have been lucky to accomplish in a matter of a decade, in my mind, so it’s very mind-boggling to be the lucky recipient of such a generous and supportive grant.”

Christina Quigley, the manager of the Cape May Court House Home Depot through which the grant proposal was directly funded, said assisting veterans’ organizations is a priority for The Home Depot Foundation. She first interacted with members of the Legion at a ceremony for a project recently completed by the foundation at the New Jersey Veterans Memorial Home in Vineland.

When Quigley found out about the large donation the Legion had made to the Veterans Home in support of the project, she knew the foundation had to next turn their eyes toward renovations at Post 331.

“We knew that supporting the Legion and their facility would continue to give back to worthy causes in our area,” Quigley said. “Their facility and museum are how they raise money, so we wanted to make sure that they had a great place to continue their work.”
