Seven lucky kids with family members in the military got an incredible surprise this week at the Home Depot parking lot in Compton, California: handmade, one-of-a-kind playhouses!

The playhouses were built by Home Depot employees and volunteers of Habitat for Humanity of Greater L.A. as part of the home improvement chain’s 8th annual Celebration of Service campaign.

ABC 7 captured the heartwarming event on video, which you can watch here.

Home Depot is a company with a heart for our military, and more than 35,000 Home Depot employees are veterans. Since 2011, the company has donated more than $250 million to various services which aid veterans in need.

“When it comes to supporting the brave men and women of our armed forces, we’re all in,” The Home Depot Foundation’s website reads.

“Too many of our veterans and their families face major housing challenges, aggravated by issues like unemployment, age and service-related disabilities. Through nonprofit partnerships and hands-on volunteering, we work hard every day to improve the lives of veterans and their families.”

“Through Team Depot, our associate-led volunteer force,” the website continues, “volunteers devote thousands of hours each year to building and repairing homes for those who have served.”

Every year, Home Depot grants millions of dollars to veteran agencies and organizations, creates housing for critically wounded veterans, and works to ensure “aging veterans have a safe place to call home.”

“We’re dedicated to giving back to those who have already given so much for our country, and with more than 35,000 veteran associates, taking care of them is personal to us.”

12-Year-Old Hailed as Hero After Saving His Friends Life After Disturbing Snapchat Posts

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble

Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online. Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography. It’s a scary cyber world out there. But oddly enough, when one 12-year-old with a good heart and sharp instincts managed to use Snapchat to get his friend the help she needed in the nick of time, by responding quickly right when he noticed something was amiss. Yahoo News reports: Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.” Want daily pop culture news delivered to your inbox? for Yahoo’s newsletter. Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline. “I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’” Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had. “Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’” Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants…

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.
