From Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna:
The Boys and Girls Club of Cecil County will now have an accessible ramp, thanks to Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna and Lowe’s store #2589. Under the Lowe’s Heroes program, its Abingdon store funded the project and its employees came to Cecil County to help out. The Lowe’s volunteers were joined by volunteers from Habitat and spent two days building the accessible ramp.
“It is great to participate in ‘Be A Part of Something Bigger’ that will help so many in need in this community,” said Casey Czajkowski, Lowe’s store manager. “We were proud to partner with our friends at Habitat for Humanity Susquehanna.”
“We’ve formed a really great partnership with Lowe’s,” said Jeremy Bopst, Construction Manager for Habitat’s Repair Program. “Our partnerships have even extended beyond Lowe’s and the Boys and Girls Club to the community at large. North East’s Bella Pizza supplied us with some pies to show their support for this project, and one of the parents whose kids go to this Club brought us subs and drinks as a way to thank us.”
This is the first project undertaken by Lowe’s with Habitat’s Repair Program. However, Lowe’s has been involved in constructing Women Build homes through Habitat’s Homeownership Program.
The ramp is the second project taken on by Lowe’s at the Boys and Girls Club. Its North East store provided the playground located behind the Club’s building.
