Over 2,000 Build and Grow Kits were donated to the elementary schools in Wilkes County. On December 13, 2016 Wilkesboro hosted a Build and Grow clinic. Eight Lowe's employees and PTO members volunteered in Wilkesboro's kindergarten and first grade classrooms and assisted students in building "Santa's Sleigh." Wilkesboro's students received not only a kit but an apron with their first patch. Any student who would like to earn more patches needs to stop by our local Lowe's the first Saturday of each month wearing their apron and pick up their next Build and Grow Kit and patch.
A big thank you to the eight Lowe's volunteers! Manager - Jackie Shumate, Gerri Watson, Crystal Sizemore, Ron Shumate, Jeff Jordan, Daniel Padget, Billy Richardson and Dylan Wood.
Thank you also to PTO for helping make this event possible.
