Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $10,000 grant to St. Joseph’s Historic Foundation Inc. for a grounds and building makeover. The project includes beautification of the grounds through landscaping and painting, removal of unhealthy trees and pruning. 

A volunteer work day with Hayti Heritage Center staff, GlaxoSmithKline employees and Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers is set for today.

“Lowe’s is committed to recognizing and supporting efforts that enrich the lives of our neighbors and customers,” said Marshall Croom, chairman of Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation.  “By supporting organizations like St. Joseph’s Historic Foundation we believe we are contributing to a cause that’s important to our customers and employees and helping build a stronger foundation for the children who will be tomorrow’s employees, homeowners and community leaders.”

Since its inception in 1957, Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has helped communities nationwide through employee volunteerism and financial contributions.  In 2012, Lowe’s and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation together contributed more than $32 million to support community and education projects in the United States, Canada and Mexico.
