Submitted by South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity
South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce the receipt of a $32,000 grant from Lowe’s, dedicated to repairing three homes in Thurston County. This significant funding enables SPSHFH to enhance the quality of life for families in our community, with particular emphasis on critical home repairs.
Thanks to this grant, South Puget Sound Habitat for Humanity has successfully replaced roofs for three homes located in Lacey, Rochester, and Rainier. The impact of these repairs extends beyond mere construction; it fosters a sense of security and stability for the families residing in these homes.
Amanda Schuyler, Construction Coordinator, expressed her gratitude, stating, “Partnering with Lowe’s has allowed us to shine a light on our Critical Home Repair Program. Many people are unaware of the invaluable work we do at Habitat.”
This funding is part of Lowe’s commitment to Habitat for Humanity International, a two-year initiative involving a generous $6 million donation. The objective is to bolster home repair and preservation efforts in owner-occupied homes. In collaboration with more than 75 local Habitat affiliates, this initiative aims to complete over 480 projects this year, addressing critical health and safety issues in homes across the U.S.
The collaboration between Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity dates back to 2003, resulting in the improvement of living conditions for over 18,000 individuals, providing them with a stable and secure place to call home.
