Lowe’s undertakes campaign to aid flood victims
Lowe’s has announced all of its stores in Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas will be set up to receive cash donations on-site following serious floods in parts of those states. Funds will benefit the American Red Cross.
Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation will match donations from customers, up to $50,000.
Rains have caused serious damage in river communities in those southern states. Earlier, a state of emergency was declared in Oklahoma, while more than a thousand homes reportedly have been destroyed by floods in Texas, and thousands of residents have been displaced in all three states.
Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the nation’s second largest home channel retailer, aids a variety of organizations, including Habitat for Humanity, local education systems and others.
