Through their Renovation Across the Nation initiative, Lowe’s has generously supported two renovations at Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.
Hundreds of kids spending their afterschool time at our Preston Taylor Boys & Girls Club were surprised with a performance of hit songs from country music star HunterHayes. The surprise concert helped to launch Lowe’s and Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s new in-store donation program and Lowe’s Renovation Across the Nation, an annual $2.5 million initiative where Lowe’s gives a $50,000 grant and hands-on support from employee volunteers to one Boys & Girls Club in each of the 50 states to refurbish the facility. This year, customers can join the cause by donating at any Lowe’s store nationwide, now through Sept. 5.
Hayes took center stage at Preston Taylor Boys & Girls Club’s music studio, in partnership with Notes for Notes, and newly renovated by Lowe’s and designed for Club members to engage in musical expression and inspire a passion for the arts. Lowe’s is also granting Renovation Across the Nation funds and providing volunteers to help open a newly created music studio this fall at our Cleveland Park Club in East Nashville. Both music studios include a stage, recording booths, DJ platform, and premium equipment, similar to popular recording studios throughout Music City.
“I’m thrilled that the kids at Nashville area Boys & Girls Clubs will have access to these state-of-the-art recording studios, as I know firsthand the positive impact music plays on a young mind,” said Hayes. “From childhood to now, music, for me, has always been a platform for self-expression and inspiration to explore creative talents. Being a part of this partnership between Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Lowe’s is important to me, because I know creating a safe environment that allows kids and teens to discover their passions and grow will have a significant impact on their future success.”
Stay tuned for the grand opening of our Cleveland Park Club’s Notes for Notes studio.
