Lowe's Heroes Project - THe Beautification of the Lake St Unit

The week of August 28th through September 1st was a week that all units were closed, but that didn't mean that work stopped! The Lowe's Heroes team from the West Main Lowe's had bigger plans! With a $2,500 budget and some savvy leaders, they were able to give Lake Street a makeover! They were able to get paint donated by Sherwin Williams, and then they went to work!

The Lowe's Heroes team repainted the entire unit! The game room was remodeled, and now has blue and white paint (Boys & Girls Club Blue), and removed the bench up front opening the door to get new carpet installed! They then repainted the Tech Room, All-Purpose Room, the Learning Center, Discovery Center, and Studio! In addition to paint in the Art Room, they donated cabinets and painted all of the cabinets white.
