Habitat for Humanity International

Since 1976, Habitat for Humanity International (Habitat) has been dedicated to providing universal access to suitable and affordable housing. Working in more than 70 countries, Habitat has assisted more than 5 million people as a result of its housing efforts.

For more than a decade, we’ve teamed up with Habitat to provide safe and affordable housing services in partnership with low-income families and communities throughout the United States. In 2014, we committed an additional $23.5 million to support these efforts through 2018.This newest commitment will bring our total contributions to $63 million since our relationship began. In 2014, Lowe’s donations assisted Habitat’s community improvement projects in 49 states and the District of Columbia.

Our employees are quick to roll up their sleeves to support Habitat, volunteering their time to build, renovate and restore homes in partnership with those in need. In 2014, Lowe’s Heroes committed their time and expertise to build or renovate homes in 380 communities across the United States. Lowe’s employees also provided training and skills workshops to communities around the nation.

We also were proud to jointly launch a nationwide campaign that aimed to mobilize thousands of community volunteers in support of Habitat’s goal of serving 1 million people each year by 2018. The campaign motivated our employees and ignited the spirit of volunteerism among customers to help Habitat build the workforce required to meet its goal.

In 10 cities from coast-to-coast, including a kickoff event in New York’s Times Square to support Hurricane Sandy victims, more than 500 Lowe’s Heroes framed homes in Lowe’s store parking lots to launch the nationwide volunteer drive.
