The team at RONA La Coop Agricole d’Embrun is raising funds for the École élémentaire publique de la rivière Castor, as  part of Lowe’s Canada Heroes campaign, which began on September 1.

Throughout September, customers of participating stores will be invited to make donations at the cash register in support of the local cause selected by their store. At the end of the campaign, Lowe’s Canada will match 50 per cent of the funds raised by the 311 participating locations – up to $2,000 per store.

“The Lowe’s Canada Heroes campaign has a special place in the hearts of our teams. The growing number of distribution centres and RONA affiliated dealer stores that choose to join forces with our corporate stores year after year demonstrates the enthusiasm of our entire network towards this campaign,” says Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, Senior Vice-President, Public Affairs, Asset Protection and Sustainable Development. “This year, for the first time, we have surpassed the mark of 300 participating locations. Words cannot express the pride I feel in seeing our people team up to help out our communities.”

This year, eight of the Lowe’s Canada network distribution centres, as well as 71 RONA affiliated dealer stores, will join the Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate stores to support 235 non-profit organizations or public schools across the country.
