Hands On, Hearts In: Lowe's Gives St. Vincent de Paul Place a Makeover

FCC News Desk

The weekend of October 19th saw a flurry of activity at St. Vincent de Paul Place. Crews from the Lowe’s in Lisbon and Waterford worked all weekend alongside community service workers, volunteers and staff painting the second-floor hallway and dining room.

The effort started about two months ago, with a tour of the facility, and culminated with a weekend of transformation and two truckloads of donations. The donations included shelving, cleaning supplies, a power washer, table saw, floor mats for the kitchen, a freezer and lots of paper products.

Add to that list all of the paint, rollers, brushes and buckets for the paint project and the scope of the Lowe’s investment is truly staggering. 

The Lowe’s crew, with shirts bearing the logo “Be a Hero – Hands On, Hearts In,” worked all day on Saturday. There was lots of laughing, music and camaraderie as they teamed with the volunteers to brighten and freshen the dining area.

We are so incredibly grateful for the generosity and commitment to our community and the patrons who benefit from St. Vincent de Paul Place. Thank you, Lowe’s.
