Home Depot and Lowes - social media outreach campaign in support of the Lowes and Home Depot national initiative. When someone visited a Lowes or Home Depot on August 11th, we asked (via social media) to send us a selfie with the #811Partners logo. We game them a hint: it's on trees and shovels. If they sent us a selfie, we sent them an #811Hat.


Pennsylvania 811 partnered with USA North 811 to bring the 811 message behind home plate for the entire San Francisco Giants vs Pittsburgh Pirates game on August 11th. 

We partnered with Common Ground Alliance (CGA) members to be part of a nationally televised horse race on August 11th. The Ortiz brothers - Irad Jr. and Jose - both wore the 811 logo throughout the entire day of races on Saturday, August 11th at Arlington Park just outside of Chicago. The horse race aired live on NBC Sports Network.
