We want to make the communities around us much stronger and more resilient, based on the premise that when our communities and people are strong, we are strong.

We bring our community strategy to life through charitable giving and the hands-on service of Lowe’s Heroes. Each year, we donate millions to nonprofit organizations through corporate giving, store donations and the Lowe’s Foundation. We believe in helping make the American Dream a reality – driving affordable housing and economic mobility through skilled trade education, job creation and investment into every community we serve.

Community Resilience

When disaster strikes, Lowe's teams rise to the occasion, helping our communities get back on their feet as quickly as possible after a storm. Our skills training, scholarship programs, and local vendor partnerships help to make our communities more economically resilient, while also improving quality of life. We constantly monitor for extreme weather, partnering with local news stations to provide expert advice from local store leadership, to help prepare those who might be impacted.
