Lowe's is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. To commemorate this centennial, the home improvement company recently launched the "100 Hometowns" initiative to give back to the communities it serves.
100 Hometowns is a $10 million commitment to help complete 100 community projects across the nation. Beginning this June, Lowe's will award 100 grants to help deserving recipients build, repair and beautify communities in a wide variety of ways.
"In approaching our centennial and particularly in the wake of such a challenging period for our country, we decided to commemorate this milestone by taking on 100 community improvement projects, with local associate volunteers lending a hand across the nation," Lowe’s President and CEO Marvin R. Ellison said in a press release.
Community members are encouraged to apply for a grant by sharing why their project is unique and describing what impact it will have within their community. Examples of eligible project types include (but are not limited to) public parks, senior citizen or youth centers, neighborhood housing, cultural preservation and area revitalization.
Applications can be submitted now through April 19. Grant recipients will be announced in June 2021, with projects expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
