Lowe’s has donated materials, and store employees have offered their time to help landscape a local city hall building in Gautier, Miss., according to a report by the local WLOX ABC-affiliate news station.
The city hall building was landscaped by volunteers as part of the company’s Lowe’s Heroes project, during which employees donate time and stores donate materials to a local community project.
Around 20 store employees turned out for the Gautier project, with another 30 volunteers from the community. The project received extensive local media coverage.
Other local Lowe’s Heroes projects this summer have included the refurbishing of a YMCA in Rochester, N.H., and two projects -- a winter housing sanctuary and a walking bridge -- at a zoo in Michigan City, Ind.
The Lowe’s Heroes program was also highlighted in news reports from Las Cruces, N.M., where volunteers helped build a wheelchair ramp for a local woman; and in Chambersburg, Pa., where volunteers helped improve a local playground.
