Lowe’s Hero Project- Open Arms Drop in Center
Lowe’s Hero Project- Open Arms Drop in Center 10/28/2016
What is the Hero Project?
Lowe’s embraces teamwork as a core value and a key ingredient in maintaining an engaged work force. They believe that by working together they can build something better — for their company, their customers and their communities. Transforming lives one community at a time — that’s been the mission of Lowe’s Heroes since the volunteer program began in our stores more than 10 years ago. The program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K–12 public school and make a difference. The store teams are proud of the thousands of hours they volunteer each year to improve the communities they serve, and that circle of pride continues to grow. Whether it was helping to rebuild a tornado-battered school or rebuilding a low-income homeowner’s pride alongside one of our national partners, Lowe’s Heroes assisted their neighbors across North America. Lowe’s Heroes has participated in more than 1,300 projects, and Lowe’s contributed more than $1.3 million in materials. Each year, many Lowe’s stores collaborate on a group project so they can make a larger difference. In 2010, with the support of Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation, Lowe’s gave employees a chance to make even more of an impact in the communities where they work and live. Lowe’s Foundation contributed more than $1 million to support larger Heroes projects. Lowe’s Heroes’ grants, up to $50,000, brought together groups of Lowe’s stores to benefit public schools and nonprofit organizations in the United States and Canada.
