Home Depot and The Salvation Army Partner to Support Haines Recovery Effort
Aerial view of one of the landslides in Haines after a rainstorm on December 3, 2020. This photo was taken by the US Coast Guard, which responded to the emergency, working with Alaska State Troopers and the City of Haines.
In partnership with The Salvation Army, Home Depot has stepped up to support recovery efforts in Haines after residents experienced landslides, mudslides, and rainstorms that took homes and left two residents still missing in the small community of 2,500.
Home Depot employees assembled seventy-five clean-up kits as a donation to The Salvation Army to provide disaster recovery support in Haines.
Each cleaning kit will include bleach/cleaner, work gloves, paper towels, a scrub brush, work gloves, a box of disposable gloves, a box of disposable masks, trash bags, sponges, and collapsible brooms and mops.
“Once The Salvation Army reached out to Home Depot for supply support it was in a matter of thirty minutes that they had reached back out to us to confirm,” says The Salvation Army’s Emergency Disaster Services director, Jenni Ragland. “The donated supplies will be transported to Haines via air freight thanks to the support of Alaska Airlines. The readiness to help just shows how much Home Depot, Alaska Airlines, and other businesses are willing to support our communities in a time of need.”
To help The Salvation Army support the community of Haines during this time, please make your emergency disaster support donation online at salarmy.us/HainesEDS.

The Corporate 100
Alaska Business has been celebrating the corporations that have a significant impact on Alaska’s economy since 1993. At the time, the corporations weren’t ranked as the list didn’t have specific ranking criteria. Instead, the Alaska Business editorial team held long, detailed, and occasionally passionate discussions about which organizations around the state were providing jobs, owned or leased property, used local vendors, demonstrated a high level of community engagement, and in general enriched Alaska.
