My son’s school is trying to raise money this year to improve the school’s courtyard. It’s nothing more than a mess of grass and weeds now but there are so many possibilities to spruce it up into a use-able space for students. It is upgrades like this that are perfect for the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant!
Kids in public K-12 schools are invited to work with their friends and teachers to submit a “Letter to Lowe’s” this week to pitch their ideas for a $25,000 grant! What an awesome program that empowers kids to make a difference in their schools.
Lowe’s has given $45 million to over 10,000 schools over the past 10 years with their Toolbox for Education grant program. To celebrate this milestone, they are giving 4 schools $25,000 each this year!
