¡Celebramos! Habitat for Humanity and Lowe’s are joining together to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month with two large construction projects that will bring together Lowe’s Heroes, community organizations, schools and local VIPS to celebrate Hispanic heritage while building strong foundations for the future in partnership with Dallas and Houston families. The project includes building two new homes and completing critical repairs on three existing homes in partnership with low-income families.
Lowe’s, a national partner of Habitat since 2004, is providing $200,000 to support the projects. Building in partnership with Dallas-Area Habitat for Humanity, Lowe’s will join a single father of two constructing his new home alongside volunteers from Trinity River Mission, the West Dallas Chamber of Commerce, Voice of Hope and St. Mary of Carmel Catholic School. In Houston, Lowe’s will partner with a single mother of four building her home in partnership with Houston Habitat for Humanity, the Houston Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Lakewood Church and SER Jobs for Progress. Construction begins on Sept. 8 in Dallas and Sept. 24 in Houston, with both houses scheduled for completion by the holidays.
Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers and participating community partners will also work throughout Hispanic Heritage Month to make repairs to two homes in Dallas and one in Houston, working side by side with the current homeowners.
“It is central to Habitat’s mission to engage people of all races, religions and nationalities in our work to create affordable housing,” said Mark Andrews, vice president of Volunteer and Institutional Engagement, Habitat for Humanity International. “Habitat thrives on the diversity of its partners and volunteers who bring so many varied experiences and backgrounds to bear on behalf of low-income families. We’re grateful for the opportunity Lowe’s has created to foster that kind of collaborative spirit in Houston and Dallas.”The initiative is part of Lowe’s current five-year commitment to Habitat, which includes grant programs, project funding, how-to clinics and underwriting Habitat’s Women Build program. The company’s commitment to Habitat through 2013 totals more than $40 million.
