Shoutout to West Edmonton Home Depot on 174 Street and 99 Avenue for Employing the Differently-Abled
I’ve been wanting to send this shoutout for a while….
Would like to recognize Home Depot -West Edmonton (174th st 99 ave). I shop fairly frequently at that store and on every visit there is always at least one disabled…scratch that… ‘differently-abled’ employee on duty. Yes, wheelchair bound..yes not fitting our definition of ‘normal’… yes, even with slight speech impediments and still they are every bit as courteous, polite and knowledgeable in their area.
Thank you for opening these opportunities to those that are often marginalized… As a mom with young children I think there is SO much value in having children see those not simply of different races or cultures but also of different abilities working together in our communities.
I don’t know if it’s a nationwide incentive that Home Depot supports… sure hope it is.. but focusing on the one location where I know it’s happening.
