Lowes Community Heroes Spruce Up Century Healthy Start

June 24, 2016

Volunteers from the Lowes on Airport Boulevard in Pensacola worked Thursday to spruce up the landscaping around the Century Healthy Start.

Lowes selected Healthy Start as their Community Hero Project.  Lowe’s Heroes is a company-wide volunteer initiative that offers employees the opportunity to work on a project in their own neighborhood, helping to make their communities better places to live, work and play.

The volunteers painted  a handrail, installed landscaping, planted a tree and installed a bird feeder.

The Century Healthy Start building at 511 Church Street has been closed since being damaged in a February EF-3 tornado.  Healthy Start is expected to reopen in the building in late July.3

    I just mailed a thank you note to Lowes Community Heroes on Airport Blvd signed Century Residents. I also looked online about these and other Lowes grants. Thank you to the ones who applied for the grant in the first place and to Healthy Start for being here. Other non profits and community organizations can apply. The municipality , might be eligible. Home Depot has them also. Perhaps East Hill Academy could benefit. I am noticing the efforts of some to brighten things up in our town and love to see it.

    Great to see volunteers from neighboring store bring a needed facelift to the area. If you are in the store, make a point to give thanks.
