Best Practices and Support Forms

Team best practices and guidelines

Per a conversation I had with Sheriee today she gave me 2 options on how to direct a non profit
(501 (c) 3) inquiring or applying for a KaBoom playground, etc.  This program is under review
      The KaBooms we are getting in our region will be decided upon in the next month or so for 2010.
      If you would like to submit one please get all the information on the non profit and send it to Sheriee. 
      Also the non profit must have $7500.00 for this venture.  Be sure to tell your DM.  You
      must be sure to let the non profit know that everything is a year in advance and that this does not
      guarantee they will get a KaBoom, it is just an application process.  You may also refer them to
      the KaBoom.org website where they also may apply, but this doesn't guarantee that we will be 
      involved or that they will get one either, it is just and application process. 
 
      Hope this helps!

Please be sure that your giving the coupons to a non profit - 501 (c) 3 holder

WE CANNOT GIVE THESE COUPONS OUT FOR RAFFLES, GOLF OUTINGS, AUCTIONS, SILENT AUCTIONS, FUND RAISERS, PRIZES, BENEFITS, CHURCHES,  ETC.  Your local fire departments and police stations are always asking for this kind of stuff and as hard as it is we have to say no!!  Now if your manager wants to donate under store promotions or mark down something that is a different story and has nothing to do with Team Depot.  Abuse of these coupons could ruin this wonderful program.  Make sure you have control of them and that other associates are not giving them out.  We are responsible for each and every one of them.  We will go over best practices concerning this issue at our next meeting.
