NINE MILE RIVER: Two non-profit organizations in East Hants will be one of six in N.S. that are recipients of The Lowe’s Canada Heroes Campaign, held during the month of September.
The Nine Mile River Trails Association will benefit from funds raised at the RONA in the Bedford Place Mall, while the RONA in Elmsdale will raise funds for the East Hants Family Resource Centre.
As part of this campaign, every Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate store in the country has chosen to support the mission or a project of a local non-profit organization or public school—a hero in its community.
In 2019, some 270 corporate stores from the Lowe’s Canada network will support over 245 organizations during the campaign—including six from Nova Scotia.
“Through the Heroes campaign, we are thrilled to support organizations that make a real difference in the communities where we operate,” said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, Senior Vice-President, Communications, Public Affairs, and Compliance at Lowe’s Canada. “We are committed to helping build stronger communities and taking concrete steps to improve the lives of those around us.
“The strength of this campaign lies in our employees’ high level of engagement to the local cause they have chosen themselves. Some of them will also volunteer their time by helping their partner organization carry out a specific, inspiring project.”
From September 1 to 30, customers from Nova Scotia will be invited to make a donation at check-out to support the Hero organizations chosen by their local RONA corporate stores. Lowe’s Canada will match 50 per cent of all customer donations up to $2,000 per store.
