Thanks to Lowe’s!

We would like to send a special thank you to Lowe’s for providing us with funding to build a ramp for a veteran in need! This grant was part of their annual Kickoff to Rebuild partnership with Rebuilding Together, Inc., and Lowe’s provided grants to affiliates located in the hometown of an NFL team, including Rebuilding Together Minnesota!

With the support provided by Lowe’s, we helped Richard and Aimee in the Nokomis neighborhood. Richard and Aimee both live with physical disabilities and needed a ramp to be able to remain in the home and community where they have lived for nearly 25 years. Our incredible Ramp Team constructed a ramp at their home, and Aimee said, “Bless you all. Dick can now get me in and out of the house by himself. I can go to my doctor and the grocery store and visit and get out to play cards again.”

Thank you to Lowe’s and our Ramp Team!

Rebuilding Together Partners with Lowe’s to Make Energy Efficiency Improvements

This fall, Rebuilding Together partnered with Lowe’s to address critical home needs during the cold winter months.  Lowe’s provided a grant that enabled us to make energy efficiency and weatherization improvements for more than 10 homeowners in need.

During the course of the fall, Lowe’s supported 65 Rebuilding Together affiliates, including Rebuilding Together Twin Cities, by helping them achieve their mission of giving low-income homeowners a safe and healthy home through grants for energy efficiency improvements.  Lowe’s has been a strong partner of the national Rebuilding Together network since 2007.  Since the beginning of this impactful partnership, Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has donated $1 million annually to Rebuilding Together.  In 2012, Lowe’s doubled their support to $2 million dollars. Over $7 million has been contributed to support 687 Lowe’s and Rebuilding Together projects nationwide.  Thank you to Lowe’s for helping keep Twin Cities area homeowners warm this winter!
