CORNELIUS, N.C. (March 28, 2016) – On April 2, Our Towns Habitat for Humanity will welcome 30 Lowe’s Heroes employee volunteers to 132 Burke Circle in Mooresville, North Carolina, to place the final touches on a new home for Mooresville resident Sabrina Torrence.

As a part of Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity’s nationwide initiative to build or repair 1,000 homes by the holidays, employee volunteers will assist Torrence in preparing her new home for moving day by landscaping her front and back yard. Projects will include rolling out sod, planting flowers and trees and installing a mailbox.

“Mooresville is a community near to our hearts since it is a place where many of our employees live and work,” said James Frison, Lowe’s director of community relations. “It is so meaningful to our employees to work with a local family to help them have a safe place to call home.”

Lowe’s partners with Habitat for Humanity to build decent and affordable homes in Mooresville and around the United States. Since 2003, Lowe’s has committed more than $63 million to Habitat and helped more than 5,500 families improve their living conditions.

Improved living conditions are critical for Torrence and her two sons who suffer from severe allergies. The family currently resides in an apartment where conditions impact her sons’ allergies. The single mother shared, “We are so grateful to Our Towns Habitat for Humanity for the wonderful opportunity to have a home and a place where my sons can breathe much easier.”

With help from Lowe’s employees on April 2, the Torrence family is one step closer to owning a new home, which is projected to close at the end of June.
“Our Towns Habitat for Humanity truly values the partnership and support Lowe’s provides to the local community,” said Jeff Porter, executive director of Our Towns Habitat for Humanity. “Their commitment to build safe and affordable housing for deserving families like the Torrence family is unmatched.”
