Lowe’s Hometowns Grants Awarded to The Salvation Army
Abilene received Lowe’s grant in 2021
Two Salvation Army locations in Texas – Lubbock and El Paso – will be receiving grants from the 2022 Lowe’s Hometowns campaign. The Salvation Army in Abilene was part of the program in 2021, when Lowe’s launched 100 Hometowns to celebrate its 100 years in business. Due to the success of the project, Lowe’s continued the idea and launched the 2022 Hometowns campaign, a five-year, $100 million commitment.
In El Paso, the grant will be used for a significant shelter renovation. This will include remodeling the lobby, restrooms, laundry spaces, and hallways.
In Lubbock, the donation will be used for Passage, a unique program, that provides supervised independent living and case management to clients 18-24 years old who have aged out of the foster care system.
“We are honored to have been selected as an award recipient,” said Major David Worthy, Commanding Officer of The Salvation Army in Lubbock. “This will allow us to significantly upgrade three residential housing units on our property. We will also subdivide the buildings to give Passage program participants their own personal, private living space.
“We’re excited to continue improving hometowns across the country,” said Marvin Ellison, Lowe’s chairman and CEO.
“This honors our longstanding commitment to serve communities where we live and work.”
