WILKESBORO ELEMENTARY SCHOOL RECEIVES $15,934 GRANT
Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation funds media center shelving
MOORESVILLE, N.C. – The Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded a $15,934 grant to the Wilkesboro Elementary School for replacing the media center’s bookshelves. The center’s current shelves are dried out, splintered, and too high for students to reach. The grant will fund 25 new bookshelves to replace the existing ones.
"The Lowe's hometown grant program is dedicated to helping meet critical needs in our local communities," said James Frison, director of community relations. "By supporting Wilkesboro Elementary School, we're contributing to a cause that's important to our customers and employees."
The Wilkesboro Elementary School grant was recommended by Lowe’s hometown grant advisory committee comprised of representatives from education, recreation and business in Wilkesboro-area communities. The committee reviews applications quarterly and recommends grants to the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation board of directors. The foundation has earmarked $250,000 in annual contributions for Wilkesboro-area community improvement and public school projects.
