Lowe’s Gives Back

Local organizations reap benefits of Canada Heroes campaign

Lowe’s Home Improvement Centres have made a couple of nice donations to local organizations through the company’s Canada Heroes campaign.

Donations were collected at stores through September.

$1.1 million were raised across Canada. Lowe’s matched 50 per cent of funds raised through the in-store campaign, up to a maximum of $2,000 per store. All funds raised in-store, along with matching corporate donations, are being donated to more than 260 community organizations.

Youth Haven is receiving $5,621.57; the local Heart and Stroke Foundation gets $3,980.70 in the Barrie-area. Habitat for Humanity is receiving $5,924.72 from the East Gwillimbury store.
