Through Lowe's Toolbox for Education® grant program, Lowe's is improving educational opportunities for children across the United States and helping to make our communities better places to live. In 2010, Lowe's Toolbox for Education contributed more than $4 million in grants to nearly 1,000 schools in all 50 states.
  • Barnard Mandarin Chinese Magnet School, an elementary school in Point Loma, Calif., worked with Lowe's to best utilize a $5,000 Toolbox for Education grant from Lowe's Charitable and Educational Foundation. Employees from Lowe's of Mission Valley collaborated with students, parents, the school principal and school staff to create a comfortable and welcoming environment that reflects the school's Chinese influence. Among the items purchased with the grant money were red benches and a patio table for the school, which also features hanging Chinese lanterns on campus and holds daily instruction in Mandarin Chinese.
  • Kentucky School for the Deaf students also can enjoy a new outdoor learning experience thanks to a $5,600 Toolbox for Education grant used to construct an amphitheater. The facility serves elementary, middle and high school students at the Danville, Ky., school. The amphitheater can function as an outdoor classroom for arts and humanities, social studies, science and P.E. activities or as a place for students to participate in skits, plays and other arts-related activities. "The teachers couldn't wait to get it up and in use" said Bill Melton, campus administrator.
  • Teachers and administrators in Jackson, N.J., hope a $4,700 Toolbox for Education grant will help stir students' interest in learning at Christa McAuliffe Middle School. The grant will be used to replace six electric stoves, a washer and dryer, and several microwave ovens in the school's cooking classroom. The school has been open for 17 years, and the appliances in the classroom are all original. The classroom helps provide important vocational training. It's used to teach nutrition, basic cooking and a work-readiness program in which students plan a menu and prepare food for luncheons.
  • In Portland, Ore., Markham Elementary School used a $5,000 Toolbox for Education grant to cultivate its Real Food Garden. The students at Markham have worked hard to get the garden growing, with lettuce, spinach and radishes appearing shortly after the garden's creation during the spring of 2010. They have been able to give some of the produce to parents and families in the community who might otherwise not get fresh vegetables. "We're so thankful to Lowe's for making this garden a reality,” said Marnie Bennett, PTO vice president at Markham. "And we are looking forward to making it a true community project.”
  • With the Lodi Unified School District's budget facing big cuts in 2010, Lois E. Borchardt Elementary School's PTO expected that many enhancements that help make the school a welcoming place would fall by the wayside. The landscaping hadn't received an update since the school opened six years ago in Lodi, Calif. PTO Treasurer Jenni Frisk knew the plants could use some TLC and the grounds needed some new mulch. "We were so excited to receive this grant so we could continue to promote pride in our schools when the budgets are being cut so badly,” Frisk said of the school's $5,000 Toolbox for Education grant. "Judy from our local Lowe's was so helpful and knowledgeable about what items would work for us. We were able to replace mulch, shrubs and plants outside the school and in inside planters.”
