LOWE'S has contributed nearly $40 million to Habitat’s work since the partnership began in 2004. This year, Lowe’s is supporting several Habitat initiatives and will fulfill a five-year, $20 million pledge to Habitat.
As the national sponsor of National Women Build Week, an effort where more than 10,000 women will volunteer at construction sites across the country this May, Lowe’s is donating $5,000 store gift cards to each of the 300 participating Habitat affiliates.
Lowe’s also has been a powerful supporter of Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative, contributing $1 million in Community Impact Grants to revitalize neighborhoods in Charlotte, N.C.; Jackson, Miss.; Portland, Ore.; and Indianapolis, Ind.
Additionally, Lowe’s and its employee volunteers, Lowe’s Heroes, are conducting how-to clinics at stores to teach women construction skills and are supporting local Habitat builds across the country.
