Keep HC Beautiful Receives Grant

keep haltom city beautiful lowesLowe’s has awarded a $5,000 grant to support Keep Haltom City Beautiful’s mission to engage individuals in building and sustaining vibrant communities.

The Lowe’s Community Partners grant will provide funding for “City Hall for Example,” an effort to not only improve the landscape but to serve as a demonstration of what can be done using Texas native plants that require very little water.

“We’re so pleased that we were selected for this grant,” Carol Williams, board chairman, said. “This gives us the opportunity to show our citizens that low water landscapes can be beautiful.”

The Keep Haltom City Beautiful grant is one of more than 60 merit-based grants awarded nationally by Lowe’s to community-based affiliates of Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to support grassroots service projects ranging from building community gardens and planting trees to leading disaster restoration and recycling programs.

Lowe’s also provides support as a national sponsor of KAB’s flagship program, the Great American Cleanup, which takes place in 20,000 communities from coast to coast. This national program engages on average 2 million volunteers who take action to create positive change and lasting impact.

“The power of the partnership between Lowe’s and Keep America Beautiful can be seen in the work accomplished by Keep Haltom City Beautiful and its community volunteers who have spent countless hours to make a difference through our Great American Cleanup and targeted community initiatives,” said Jennifer Jehn, president and CEO of Keep America Beautiful. “Keep America Beautiful is thrilled to work with Lowe’s to continue transforming public spaces into beautiful places for a third year.”

Keep America Beautiful affiliates and partnering organizations received support from Lowe’s for 180 initiatives through the first two years of the KAB/Lowe’s grant program. Through this partnership, 130,000 acres of parks and public land have been cleaned; more than 886,000 flowers and bulbs have been planted; nearly 200 playgrounds/recreational areas have been restored; and more than 600 edible and community gardens have been planted.
