Lowe's American Red Cross Donation To Aid Flooded Colorado Communities

Monday September 30th, 2013 - 10:23AM


In response to the flooding in Colorado, Lowe’s announced that it will expand its relief efforts by donating $250,000 to the American Red Cross to support the recovery of local families and communities. In the aftermath of the flooding, Lowe’s has also assisted residents in the hardest-hit areas by delivering critically needed cleaning supplies and providing volunteer assistance to local homeowners.

The donation will support the American Red Cross’ efforts to provide food, shelter, emotional support and other relief to those affected by the flooding that devastated communities in Colorado.

Last week, Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers teamed with Lowe’s national disaster relief partner, the First Response Team of America, to assist homeowners in Longmont. They distributed hundreds of relief buckets filled with cleaning supplies and helped residents by removing mud and debris, cleaning out basements and garages, and responding to individual needs. Lowe’s Heroes and the First Response Team continued relief efforts Wednesday in Lyons, where they assisted homeowners in one of Colorado’s hardest-hit communities.
