James Hurst and Victory Elementary Receive Lowe’s Toolbox for Education Grants for New Playground Fences
Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation has awarded Victory Elementary School and James Hurst Elementary School each $4,910 to build new fences around their playgrounds this summer.
The grants are part of Lowe’s Playground Safety project to support community improvement projects. The grant application was based on the goal of having safe, active physical activity and interactions with classmates while establishing lifelong relationships.
“Our schools will benefit greatly from this grant,” said Dr. Elie Bracy, III, Division Superintendent. “We appreciate the support from Lowe’s to ensure a safe play environment for all students.”
To celebrate this new addition, each school will host a Lowe’s Community Day where the community can volunteer to help build the new playground fences. This summer, James Hurst Elementary students, teachers, parents and neighbors can volunteer on Tuesday, July 19 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. At Victory Elementary, students, teachers, parents and neighbors are encouraged to volunteer on Monday, July 25 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. To volunteer, please contact each school.
