Lowe's Adopts The Arc of Amador and Calaveras, Amador Campus as it 2013 Heroes Project. "Never Stop Improving"

The Lowe's team has selected The Arc of Amador and Calaveras for their 2013 Heroes project.  "Lowe's embraces teamwork as a core value and a key ingredient in maintaining an engaged work force. Lowe's believe that by working together they can build something better - for their company, their customers and the community.

Lowe's representatives, Karen Briggs Human Resources Manager, has been visiting with The Arc of Amador and Calaveras on a regular basis reviewing building and program needs and bringing Lowes team members in to The Arc to give their professional opinion on where improvements can help.  The Lowe's team helped The Arc identify areas that needed improving - new blinds in the windows to help with heat and cold, new benches outside that are solid, new light fixtures, new umbrellas for shade in the garden area, and the list goes on and on. The Martel Lowe's store participates in volunteer projects like this every year as part of an community employee volunteer effort known as Lowe's Heroes.

Lowe's Heroes is a company-wide volunteer program that offers its employees the opportunity to support their local community improvement projects. The program has been in effect since the late 1990s and according to company officials, last year alone, Lowe's Heroes were responsible for completing more than 1,300 community and education projects throughout North America. Lowe's contributed more than $1.3 million in materials to support these projects.

"The Arc is so grateful for the recognition and opportunity to be recipients of Lowe's Heroes program.  Some of the hardest challenges for non-profits are to find the dollars to support capital/maintenance improvement programs, knowing that we were selected for this year's project has been so rewarding. The Lowe's team is phenomenal and we've developed a great partnership with Lowe's!  They're always looking out for us!" Said Shawnna Molina, Executive Director of The Arc of Amador and Calaveras.
