Starting today and running through to February 20, Lowe’s is seeking nominations for its Lowe’s Hometowns impact program, a five-year, $100 million initiative designed to improve and revitalize communities across Texas and the entire United States.
“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. I am incredibly proud to see the impact that Lowe’s associates continue to make in supporting Lowe’s Hometowns projects across the country.” Marvin Ellison, Lowe’s chairman and CEO
