"At Lowe’s Canada, our purpose is to help people love where they live, and that goes beyond our stores. It’s important to us to make a tangible difference in the communities we serve across the country," said Jean-Sébastien Lamoureux, Senior Vice-President, Communications, Public Affairs and Compliance at Lowe’s Canada.

This campaign has run in our Lowe’s stores across the country for several years, and we’re excited to extend it to RONA and Reno-Depot."
From September 1 to 30, customers from all Lowe’s, RONA, and Reno-Depot corporate stores will be invited to make a donation at check-out to support the local organization chosen by their store. Lowe’s Canada will match 50% of all customer donations up to $2,000 per store.
