JEEP ROGERS FAMILY YMCA HAS BEEN SELECTED AS A LOWE’S 100 HOMETOWNS RECIPIENT
[COLUMBIA, SC – July 28, 2021] – The Jeep Rogers Family YMCA
is thrilled to be one of the 100 impact projects that are the cornerstone of 100 Hometowns
, an initiative to celebrate Lowe’s Home Improvement’s centennial.
Lowe’s received more than 2,200 submissions to the 100 Hometowns program, which invited people across the country to nominate their hometown projects in need.
“That our Jeep Rogers Family YMCA was one of the 100 selected projects out of 2,200 applications is simply amazing,” said YMCA of Columbia CEO Bill Price. “Jeff Casey, Director at the Jeep location, put in a lot of hard work and many hours applying and we couldn’t be more thrilled to be selected for this significant contribution.”
The 100 Hometowns program will complete 100 projects across 37 states that rebuild areas reeling from natural disasters, repair critical housing, restore beloved community centers, and revive green spaces. The 100 Hometowns projects span urban, rural and suburban communities and will benefit an array of community members, from toddlers, teens and seniors to veterans, small business owners, students, and more.
