Ace Helpful Places campaign to have green theme

Ace Hardware’s “New Faces for Helpful Places” campaign will have a green theme this year, the Oak Brook, Ill.-based co-op announced.

Ace annually selects 10 “Helpful Places” to receive a renovation from nominations submitted by the public. “Helpful Places” must be locations that house a not-for-profit organization dedicated to serving the community.

The selected non-profits receive $10,000 from Ace, as well as Ace volunteers who help with the renovations. Previous renovation projects have included paint, lighting, storage, bathroom and kitchen repairs.

In total,  Ace has donated $200,000 to local “Helpful Places” across the country. Applications for this year’s campaign are due Aug. 31.
