Members of “Team Depot” converged on this home on North Wahanna Road in Seaside this week for a labor of love. They responded to a request for assistance from a local veterans’ group to come to the aid of a Vietnam veteran in need.

On Monday morning, Team Depot co-captains Jeremy Gleason and Sandie Laccinola were joined by Mitch Thielen, Daniel Fox-Telford, Anthony Beltran, Mindy Mead and Tony Poelstra in replacing a deck in need of repair, providing materials and labor at no cost.

“The deck was in disarray,” Gleason said. “Part of it was sunken in and falling apart. They had caution tape around it. He couldn’t cross the front to walk around to his utility room.”

This is co-captain Sandie Laccinole’s third major project with Team Depot, which reaches out to local communities and helps those in need. “We’re always looking for projects and the more we can do to help the community, the better,” she said.

“‘Anytime we can get out as a team and do something for a community, it’s just awesome,” Gleason added.
