For more than a quarter century, Rebuilding Together has rehabilitated and rebuilt homes in vulnerable communities throughout the United States. Every year, nearly 100,000 community volunteers come together to support almost 10,000 revitalization projects across the nation.
Since 2007, Lowe’s has supported Rebuilding Together through a combination of grants and volunteerism. Our grants help low-income community members afford much-needed renovations, including energy efficiency upgrades, safety enhancements and accessibility modifications. To date, our nearly $12.5 million in contributions and 2,600 Lowe’s Heroes, serving nearly 30,000 hours, have enabled critical restoration services benefiting almost 15,000 people. The market value of the work for homeowners is more than $20 million.
In 2014, we provided $2.5 million in contributions, and more than 800 Lowe’s Heroes assisted projects in 31 communities across the nation.
