Lowe’s Home Improvement has opened up nominations for the second year of its Lowe’s Hometowns program. Nominations are open here.
The program allows people to nominate a project, organization, or cause that could receive a grant from the 2023 program.
Eligible projects include:
- Neighborhood housing and shelters
- Local facilities that serve community members, including food pantries, senior citizen centers and youth clubs
- Outdoor community spaces, including gardens and playgrounds
- Cultural preservation, such as a theatre or memorial renovation
- Facilities dedicated to skilled trades education
“Giving back to the communities where we live and work has been at the core of Lowe’s philosophy since our founding more than 100 years ago, and Lowe’s Hometowns is a key part of how we bring that commitment to life,” said Marvin Ellison, Lowe’s chairman and CEO. “I am incredibly proud to see the impact that Lowe’s associates continue to make in supporting Lowe’s Hometowns projects across the country.”
Lowe’s said that the organizations that got help in the first year of the program have seen a massive increase in demand for the programs and services they provide.
“From community spaces damaged by a natural disaster to food pantries facing low supply and high demand, we must come together to continue to serve communities in need,” said Diane Quest, interim president and CEO, Points of Light, Lowe’s impact partner. “Lowe’s understands businesses play a key role in strengthening communities. The Lowe’s Hometowns signature projects completed in 2022 will have a deep impact, and Points of Light is proud to support Lowe’s Hometowns in 2023 and continue to increase that impact.”
Nominations are open here for the program or organization of your choice in the Fayetteville area or beyond, for the Lowe’s Hometowns program.
