Greenwood, SC – Lowe’s has announced that Connie Maxwell Children’s Ministries (CMCM) renovation of the Dunbarton house is one of 100 community projects to be completed this year as part of Lowe’s Hometowns, the company’s largest-ever community impact program. Launched in 2022, Lowe’s Hometowns is a five-year, $100 million commitment from Lowe’s to rebuild and revitalize community spaces nationwide.
CMCM will use the funds renovate the Dunbarton home on campus in Greenwood, SC. The Dunbarton home is a 13-bed, 9-bath guest home that will house volunteers. With over 2,000 volunteers visiting campus each year to work on significant projects that will impact generations of children and families, it is vital to have a space for them to live while they are serving.
Danny Nicholson, President of CMCM said, “We are very thankful for this grant from Lowe’s Hometowns Community Impact Project. This grant will give us the ability to complete the Dunbarton Home and allow us to have more volunteers visit campus. Volunteers are vital to our mission to complete our plans that are part of our Decade of Dreams strategic plan. We are thrilled to have been chosen and know this will help us continue to care for more children and families for years to come.”
This year’s Lowe’s Hometowns projects were selected from 94 communities across 41 states and Washington, D.C., and will address needs specific to each community, from housing and community centers to outdoor spaces and facilities for first responders and veterans. Each project will receive a grant from Lowe’s to make physical improvements that help local organizations continue to make a meaningful impact in their communities. At the core of this commitment are Lowe’s red vest associates, who share a passion for giving back to their communities and provide support to every Lowe’s Hometowns project.
Now in the second year of the initiative, Lowe’s Hometowns invites nonprofits and community members to share stories of projects in need. Lowe’s is partnering with Connie Maxwell Children’s Ministries, local Lowe’s associates, construction pros, and impact partner Points of Light to complete this project.
