Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers have joined forces with Habitat for Humanity of Kent County to contribute to the revitalization of the Roosevelt Park Neighborhood. Lowe’s awarded Habitat Kent a $70,000 grant to help reach the neighborhood’s goals of beautification and highlight the neighborhood as a local destination for economic investment.

Thanks to Lowe’s volunteer and financial support Habitat Kent will be able to empower the Roosevelt Park Neighborhood on Grand Rapids’ southwest side. The grant supports a number of revitalization projects including:

  • Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers will frame a new Habitat home in the Roosevelt Park Neighborhood.
  • 200 residents and businesses will receive $50 in Lowe’s gift cards to beautify the exterior of their homes and buildings.
  • Pop-up shop and tactical demonstration event will showcase the vision for the corridor as laid out by the ongoing neighborhood planning process.

Lowe’s awarded $1.5 million in grants to 19 Habitat for Humanity organizations across the country to support more than 400 community projects as part of Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization program, an effort to serve more families through community development partnerships. A national partner since 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat for Humanity and helped more than 5,500 families improve their living conditions.

The new home built through this grant will support a yearlong commitment between Habitat for Humanity International and Lowe’s to work alongside 1,000 families to build or repair their homes in time for the holidays.
