Home Hardware Supports Nova Scotia Municipalities

Home Hardware has set up a province-wide initiative in Nova Scotia in partnership with national non-profit Tree Canada to help municipal governments replace trees lost during Hurricane Dorian. The initiative will see Home Hardware donate $65,000 to Tree Canada’s Operation ReLeaf. With a hurricane, the pandemic, and last spring’s horrific mass shooting, Nova Scotia has had a devastating year. Home Hardware has locations throughout the province and its dealers are deeply embedded in their local communities. “For local Home Hardware dealers, their customers are their neighbours; they are very much affected by what happens in their community,” says Danielle St-Aubin, CEO of Tree Canada. “Municipalities are facing revenue shortfalls due to the pandemic and Home Hardware’s contribution will allow Tree Canada to assist local governments in replanting and recovery efforts on behalf of entire communities in the province.” Since 1992, Home Hardware dealers have planted more than 26,000 trees, valued at nearly $1.5 million, in green spaces from coast to coast.
