HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)– College move-in day can be hectic, busy, and stressful.
But Home Depot volunteers working at the University of Alabama- Huntsville for move-in day say they want to change that. A group of more than 15 people from 3 Huntsville Home Depot stores assisted students Friday as they got settled in.
Lynda Ares, Store Manager, said, “This is the first. The first time we’ve decided to do it… [We] can get everything together, one trip up.”
Students like Tevon Walker were breathing a sigh of relief.
“I just pulled my car up and they said come on in, we’ll help you unload,” he said.
Volunteers used flat carts, shopping carts, even school-provided laundry carts to move students’ stuff up to their assigned dorm rooms. They hoped for an easier transition back to school, so students can focus on the year ahead.”
