"A CALL TO SERVE” – LOWE’S 2013 SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY REPORT

Awards & Recognition

At Lowe’s, leadership is viewed through the lens of service – service to customers, service to employees and service to the communities where we do business.

In recognition of Lowe’s legacy of service, the National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation (NABEF) awarded Lowe’s its 2013 Service to America Corporate Leadership Award. The award honors non-broadcast businesses that exemplify an extraordinary focus on community service and corporate social responsibility.

“Lowe’s disaster relief efforts, community improvement initiatives and education grant and scholarship programs have assisted countless Americans,” said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. “The NAB Education Foundation is pleased to award the Corporate Leadership Award to Lowe’s for consistently demonstrating its commitment to community service.

In May, just weeks before the NABEF award presentation, Lowe’s quickly mobilized to lend a hand when tornadoes destroyed suburban neighborhoods only miles from the Lowe’s store in Moore, Okla. Lowe’s Heroes assisted tornado victims across the region, and Lowe’s donated $1 million to support disaster relief and recovery efforts.

“Our hearts are heavy. But in finding the strength to serve others in need, we find the resolve to keep our commitments to move forward and rebuild,” Lowe’s Chief Marketing Officer Tom Lamb said during the award presentation. “We give back because we believe serving others is our mission. We give back because these are our schools, they’re our homes and our neighborhoods as well.”
