$50,000 GRANT FROM LOWE’S FOR FACILITY IMPROVEMENTS

 

Lowe’s and Boys & Girls Clubs of America build pride at 50 clubs in 50 states through $2.5m Renovation Across the Nation

NEW HAVEN – Renovation Across the Nation. Led by Lowes, and in partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America, this major initiative is giving $50,000 to one Club per state, for a total of $2.5 million in critical repairs, improvements and refurbishments around the country. We are excited to share that the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven will receive the $50,000 grant for the state of Connecticut – and these funds will be put towards facility improvement. “The Boys & Girls Club of New Haven is excited to receive this funding to make key improvements to our Columbus Ave. site. We plan to create a new learning center and multimedia room which will allow us to attract more young people to our programs,” said Stephanie Barnes, the Club’s executive director.

“Boys & Girls Clubs drive academic success, influence positive health and wellness, and build good character and citizenship for America’s kids and teens, putting them on a path to great futures,” said Jim Clark, president and chief executive officer of BGCA. “Our partnership with Lowe’s holistically impacts Clubs – addressing critical improvements needed while bringing the skills and dedication of Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to leave a lasting mark on Clubs and in the lives of our members, staff and local communities.”

To create the largest single initiative ever undertaken by Lowe’s and Boys & Girls Clubs of America, one Club in each state was selected from Clubs in need of significant repairs and improvements. Lowe’s will support a wide range of enhancements ranging from kitchen repairs to amenities that influence creativity and well-being like music studios and counseling spaces. To see a full list of Renovation Across the Nation Club recipients, visit the Boys & Girls Clubs of America partner page.
