LOWE'S BREAKS OUT BUCKET BRIGADES AS HURRICANE SEASON BEGINS

LOWE'S COMPANIES, INC. | August 07, 2020

Hurricane season is underway, and the Red Vests have mobilized to help impacted communities. Hanna made landfall in Texas in July and when the calendar turned to August, Isaias made its way up the East coast. Lowe’s held drive-through bucket brigade events in response to both to help people in their recovery efforts. On July 29, Lowe’s donated cleanup supplies to residents at four Texas locations – Edinburg, N. McAllen, Pharr and Weslaco. 300 buckets were provided at each location. On August 6, Lowe’s orchestrated a bucket brigade in Salisbury, Maryland and at three locations in Delaware – Dover, Lewes and Middletown. Over 2,200 buckets of cleanup supplies were distributed in that district, which encountered six tornados during the tropical storm.
