“Mary Nelson Youth Center—a grassroots, community-run youth center dedicated to empowering the lives of children and their families—requested assistance in renovating and repairing its space so it can continue to combat poverty through a wide range of programs and resources focused on education, mentorship, health, career and life-skills services. The center also plays a pivotal role in helping seniors and families get medication and health services they cannot afford.”

Former Lowe’s associate and award-winning country music star Kane Brown—along with Lowe’s 2021 Home Team players including legendary quarterback Drew Brees, Travis Kelce, Najee Harris and Matt Light—will also help with their own hometown projects.

 All grant recipients were notified July 20.  Lowe’s will partner with their local associates, construction pros and the community to develop project-specific timelines and complete project by the end of this year.
