Sixty Lowe’s Heroes from five area stores volunteered their time and skills last week for a variety of projects at the new Salvation Army Royce and Jane Reynolds Center for Worship and Service and Boys & Girls Club.
The main project the group worked on was the installation of a new playground and fencing that will be used primarily by children aged 3 – 4 who are part of the new Child Development Center, a partnership with Guilford Child Development and The Cemala Foundation that will offer child care for low-income families at low to no cost.
The Heroes also built an information board at the Kevin Harvick Foundation Park, assembled benches and picnic tables to be placed around the new campus, painted fencing, pressure washed sidewalks, disassembled bleachers at the old Boys & Girls Club facility, transported and relocated the bleachers to the new campus, and created a key labeling and identification system for the campus.
Lowe’s Heroes is a company-wide volunteer initiative that offers Lowe’s employees the opportunity to work on a project in their own neighborhood, helping to make their communities better places to live, work and play.
The Salvation Army of Greensboro is incredibly appreciative to the Lowe’s management and employees that gave of their time and expertise during the week. In total, the team worked 480 hours, and when combined with the supplies and tools that Lowe’s contributed, the value of their work and equipment amounted to at least $25,000. Thank you again, Lowe’s!
