Canadians shopping for home improvement products through the month of September are going to be given an opportunity to help out their local community.
Now in its fifth year, Lowe’s Canada is bringing back its Heroes campaign from September 1-30. Through this community effort, Lowe’s will match 50 percent of the funds raised, up to $2,000 per location. This year, a total of 313 locations will support 242 charities, non-profits, and public schools across the country. In Lethbridge, the RONA store is supporting the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and at Lowe’s, the Inclusion Lethbridge Association – a charity that provides support and resources for those with developmental disabilities.
No purchase is necessary to participate in the fundraiser, and the staff at Loews say they are going to offer multiple ways to donate.
In 2021, over $1.5 million was raised from customers’ generosity and corporate matches. In Lethbridge, two charities collectively received over $6,700. Streets Alive Mission received $2,529 and Friends of the Helen Schuler Nature Centre Society received $4,180.50.
