Lowe’s Makes Donation To Support Disaster Relief

Lowe’s has announced it will donate $500,000 to support disaster relief and rebuilding efforts in communities affected by tornadoes, including recent storms across the central and southern United States. Lowe’s is working with its national nonprofit partners to provide both immediate and long-term support to local communities impacted by the storms, it noted.
As part of the $500,000 pledge, Lowe’s will donate $250,000 to the American Red Cross to meet immediate needs, including providing food, shelter, emotional support and other relief to devastated communities. Lowe’s will use the remaining $250,000 to fund projects in communities with the greatest need as identified by its nonprofit partners throughout the tornado season and as communities rebuild.
The First Response Team of America, Lowe’s national disaster relief partner, has been on the ground assisting with relief efforts in Mayflower, Arkansas, one of the areas hardest hit by storms on April 27. Local employee volunteers will support ongoing recovery efforts by delivering critically needed relief supplies in Arkansas and other communities. Lowe’s noted that it is also assisting its employees and their family members impacted by the tornadoes through its employee relief fund.
