Lowe’s of Danbury

August 31, 2016

This week, the City of Danbury is thanking and honoring the wonderful crew at Lowe’s Home Improvement who spent last Thursday donating their time and efforts to our City Shelter on New Street. We would especially like to thank the manager, Todd Wingard, who chose the shelter as Lowe’s yearly volunteer project.

The project began because of the shelter’s unkempt garden. In the past, there was a group who maintained it, but recently the shelter became in need of a new partnership- that’s when we reached out to Lowe’s. Mr. Wingard decided to go above and beyond our requests.

The shelter was chosen as the yearly volunteer project for the “Lowe’s Heroes” of Danbury. All Lowe’s stores are encouraged to participate in volunteer work within the communities they serve. The heroes have done work from repairing non-profits to rebuilding schools.

As part of the Lowe’s Heroes program, volunteers in Danbury provided the shelter with a new garden, weed maintenance, new tiles to solve bathroom issues, blinds for the windows, and a few new appliances for inside the space. This program has been running through the company for over a decade, “transforming lives one community at a time.”

Our community can only be as strong as the people and the businesses who build it, which is why Danbury is proud to have a company as dedicated to our foundation as Lowe’s is!
Thank you again!
