Lowe’s recently made a $1 million commitment to support disaster relief efforts for associates, customers and communities in direct response to Hurricane Dorian’s impact along the U.S. coast and the Bahamas.
The Lowe’s Emergency Command Center also expedited more than 6,000 truckloads of needed supplies, including generators, bottled water, sand, plywood, chainsaws, trash bags, gas cans and tarps.
“Lowe’s is committed to helping our associates, customers and the communities we serve recover and rebuild from Hurricane Dorian,” said Marvin Ellison, Lowe’s president and CEO. “Beyond our financial commitment, Lowe’s will help communities recover with product donations and volunteer support alongside our nonprofit partners for weeks and months to come.”
Lowe’s said it will work with the American Red Cross, the Bahamas Red Cross and additional disaster relief partners to help communities impacted by the storm. The company will further support affected associates by doubling the company’s match to the Lowe’s Employee Relief Fund, which provides financial assistance in times of crisis.
