Village Project garage gets a makeover

The Village Project garage is clean, bright and organized thanks to volunteers from a local home improvement store.

For over 10 years, Lowe’s has offered a volunteer program through their stores called Lowe’s Heroes. The program encourages employees in a location to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K–12 public school and make a difference.

The Village Project’s headquarters in Bay Village is the grateful recipient of a recent Lowe’s Heroes project carried out by a team of employees from the Lowe’s of Rocky River under the direction of store manager, Ryco Crawford.

The employees gave the garage at the headquarters building a sparkling new makeover, including repairing, painting and sealing the floor, painting the walls, installing new lighting, replacing shelving and supplying racks for tools and ladders.

“Our garage is key to our operation, storing supplies for our facility, garden, and fundraising events,” said Village Project Executive Director Barb Harrell. “Village Project was blessed to have the Rocky River store give our garage some much-needed attention.”

Working together to make a difference is something that Lowe’s Heroes and Village Project has in common. They both help to make our community a better place to live.
