Pledging its support for the training of America’s future skilled workforce, Home Depot recently donated $85,000 to SkillsUSA – VICA, a national organization for career and technical education students and their instructors. The donation will assist in the sponsorship of national SkillsUSA activities, including its career fair, 2002 conference management guide, and online employment network.

“As prospective skilled workers in professions ranging from machining and drafting to transportation and health, our students are getting ready to take their place in building America’s communities,” says Timothy Lawrence, executive director of SkillsUSA. “We appreciate Home Depot’s investment in the careers and technical education of our students.”
