Lowe’s Canada through local RONA centres, is sending funds to the Chatham-Kent Hospice and the Wallaceburg Royal Canadian Legion.
The hospice is to receive more than $2,700, while the Legion will get nearly $2,600.
Lowe’s is donating $1.1 million through its 630 corporate and affiliated stores across the country. It’s part of the company’s Canada Heroes campaign.
Throughout September, every Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate store in the country collected donations to help local non-profit organizations or public schools of their choosing fulfill their missions or carry out specific projects. Lowe’s Canada matched 50 per cent of all 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.
“We are grateful that our employees and customers across the country came together again this year to help people love where they live,” said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, Senior Vice-President, Communications, Public Affairs and Compliance at Lowe’s Canada, said in a media release. “With all our corporate stores participating for the first time, our Heroes Campaign extended its support to even more community organizations and projects that our employees feel strongly about. Many thanks to everyone who made this year’s campaign an even bigger success.”
