Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County Chuck Hill Unit teen volunteers and parents provided hands-on help with an improvement project as part of a $41,375 grant to the Club on November 16th.
The $41,375 grant to the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County, Chuck Hill Unit is part of a $1 million contribution to the Boys & Girls Club of America. Local Lowe’s Heroes volunteered at the Club assisting with new pavers for the exterior and building a new garden area next to the facility. The Lowe’s grant also funded an outdoor basketball court, a first for the Club, which will be complete in the coming weeks. This donation and volunteer activity made positive updates throughout the Club to help build a brighter future for the over 150 local youth attending.
“Lowe’s has been an exceptional partner of the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Lucie County for the past few years. They’ve been instrumental into transforming a school cafeteria into a full functioning Boys & Girls Club that our kids appreciate.” said London Reeves, Unit Director of the Chuck Hill Unit.
