Home Depot steps up to boost Yogurt shop dream

By From page B7 | October 08, 2012

FAIRFIELD — Volunteers from The Home Depot have helped out with the new YIPPIE Yogurt store being put together at 1955 W. Texas St. in Fairfield.

They installed a tile wall that encloses the yogurt machines. They also installed new flooring in the dining area.

“This will transform the look of the shop,” YIPPIE Foundation Vice President Daniel Bell said in a press release. “We are truly blessed by the caring folks at The Home Depot.”

YIPPIE stands for Youth Initiating Professional Preparedness in Employment. The nonprofit group provides job training for low-income and foster youths and is opening the yogurt shop to help with this goal.
