GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Habitat for Humanity of Greenville County received a $15,000 grant Wednesday from Lowe’s to help repair four homes in the City of Greenville.
The funding from Lowe’s is part of a two-year, $6 million donation to Habitat for Humanity International to support home repair and preservation efforts in owner-occupied homes. Through this partnership, more than 75 local Habitat affiliates will complete more than 480 projects this year to address critical health and safety issues in homes across the U.S. Since 2003, Lowe’s and Habitat have worked together to help more than 18,000 people build or improve a place to call home.
With the support of this grant, Habitat Greenville will conduct critical repairs in low income owner-occupied homes, including ADA improvements that create accessibility and provide safety for the owner occupants.
“Habitat’s Home Preservation Program means a better quality of life for people who have been living in their homes for years, but maintenance is too much for them,” said Monroe Free, President and CEO of Habitat Greenville. “This partnership between Lowe’s and Habitat Greenville is helping people to stay in their homes.”
