Boucherville, QC – October 15, 2019 – Lowe’s Canada, a leading Canadian home improvement company, operating or servicing over 600 corporate or affiliated stores under different banners, celebrates the success of its 2019 Heroes Campaign. From September 1 to 30, some 270 Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate stores in the country raised funds to help a non-profit organization or public school of their choice—heroes in their communities—fulfill its mission or carry out a specific project. Lowe’s Canada has matched 50% of all donations, up to a maximum of $2,000 per store. Thanks to employee initiatives, customer generosity, and corporate donations, more than $1.2 million will be distributed to over 245 community organizations across the country. Lowe’s Cornwall employees, for their part, chose Big Brothers Big Sisters of Cornwall and District as their Hero organization and will be donating $1,260.77 to this local organization.
A successful second edition
For the second year in a row, the total amount given back as part of the campaign has exceeded $1 million. “The Lowe’s Canada Heroes Campaign’s success goes beyond the sums presented,” said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, Senior Vice-President, Public Affairs, Asset Protection and Sustainable Development. “It lies in our employees’ and customers’ high level of engagement towards helping those who play a positive role in their communities.”
In Canada, over 15 partner organizations will be receiving more than $10,000. “Again this year, our stores have organized an array of fundraising activities to maximize the amount provided to their Hero organization,” added Mr. Lamoureux. “In addition, several employees will further support their chosen cause by taking part, on their personal time, in volunteer activities over the next year.”
