Keep America Beautiful and Lowe’s are proud to announce this year's launch of the Community Partner Grants. The grants engage local volunteers to take action to benefit communities across the country. Over the past seven years, Lowe’s has supported Keep America Beautiful Affiliates with more than $6 million in contributions for projects in conjunction with Lowe’s Hero employee volunteers support. Lowe’s and Keep America Beautiful have mobilized nearly 50,000 volunteers since the partnership began. This partnership will award grants to Keep America Beautiful Affiliates for community improvement projects that reflect the need for a high impact project in your community that includes critical needs (a need to have vs. a nice to have). You are strongly encouraged to involve your local Lowe's stores and Lowe’s Heroes.
