The Lowe’s Stores of Baton Rouge in partnership with Scott’s Living and the Property Brothers are donating 84 vanities to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Baton Rouge to be used in damaged homes being rebuilt by Habitat following the 2016 flood. The vanities will be presented Friday at 2:30 pm by Lowe’s South manager Mike Pitts, Lowe’s Market Director Paris Lytle and Lowe’s employees at the ReStore North, 4301 Airline Highway at Plank Road.
The catastrophic floods in August damaged more than 142,000 homes with only a small percentage insured against flooding. Thanks to generous donors and volunteers, Habitat for Humanity gutted and cleaned more than 70 damaged homes last fall. Habitat is currently rebuilding four homes this winter and has set a goal to rebuild 100 homes for families in need in 2017.
“We are grateful for the generosity of the Lowe’s Stores of Baton Rouge, Scott’s Living and the Property Brothers,” said Lynn Clark, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of GBR. “We plan to immediately start using these vanities in our rebuild projects, including the four rebuilds we already have in process. With great partners like Lowe’s, we can continue to help our Greater Baton Rouge community recover.”
