Lowe’s Heroes Spread Goodwill at Stepping Stones
Date posted: December 5, 2019On Dec. 3, employees of Lowe’s Mason and Beechmont locations joined forces for a tremendous service project at Stepping Stones. 25 skilled volunteers, ranging from inventory control staff to front-end supervisors and store mangers, spent a full day working hard at our Given Campus in Indian Hill.
The service event was part of Lowe’s Heroes, a company-wide initiative that gives employees the opportunity to execute improvement projects that will have a lasting impact in their community. Stepping Stones was introduced to the program when Cassandra Moore, an educational aide in our Step-Up Autism Alternative Education program, nominated the agency. Moore also works part-time at Lowe’s Mason location.
A Full Day of Projects and GenerosityDuring their day at Stepping Stones, the volunteers completed an impressive list of projects.
They repainted the gym, replaced cove molding in two large recreation areas, constructed a full flight of outdoor steps, installed vertical blinds for office space, built a dozen picnic tables and replaced a sink and faucet. They also generously gifted the agency a new Maytag washing machine and dryer as well as a Whirlpool dishwasher for use by our program staff.
To see a community project of this magnitude come to Stepping Stones at the start of the giving season truly touches our hearts! In total, the Lowe’s Heroes provided 175 skilled man-hours as well as more than $4,000 in supplies and equipment. The impact of their visit will benefit the agency for many seasons to come and we are so thankful for their support.
