ADDITIONAL INFO ON LOWE’S RELIEF EFFORTS:
The deployment of Lowe’s Tool Rental Disaster Response Trailer comes on the heels of Lowe’s larger Hurricane Ida recovery efforts, including $1 million in product donations and $1 million to help the American Red Cross, St. Bernard Project and other disaster relief partners. Lowe’s is also assisting nonprofit Pro customers.
Lowe’s also hosted 13 drive-through bucket brigade events in Louisiana on Friday, September 10.

Each store distributed 500-plus buckets filled with goggles, respirators, sanitizer, bug spray, water, scrub brushes, bleach and work gloves.
