The discount comes after the home improvement retailer previously donated more than $2 million towards Hurricane Ida disaster relief efforts. In addition, Lowe’s associates recently completed three projects in support of first responders through its 100 Hometowns initiative, including upgrading the Mereta Volunteer Fire Department in Texas, which serves double duty housing firefighting equipment and functioning as a community hall, rebuilding Austin Child Guidance Center following damage from Texas’ winter storm in 2020 and expanding the Cleveland Hope Lodge, which offers a free place to stay for cancer patients and their caregivers traveling to Ohio for care.
