Lowe's Heroes Transforms Italian Home for Children's Residential Units
The Lowe’s Heroes program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K–12 public school and make a difference. This year the Quincy, Woburn, and Saugus Lowe’s teamed up to provide the materials and volunteers to create therapeutic living spaces for all the children in Italian Home for Children’s residential program. Lowe’s donated paint, wall decals, rugs, toy boxes, cubbies, and more which helped to completely transform the residential spaces at the Jamaica Plain campus. In addition to the resources donated to transform the space, Lowe’s also donated Legos, Wiis, and toys for the children.
