The No. 2 Fire Station stands ready for a coat of paint from Lowe’s employees and others on Saturday.


Ding, ding, ding. Community needs assistance with painting. Painting.

The familiar tones and message typically heard in any department of a Lowe’s Home Improvement store sometimes sound in the heads of its employees outside the store as part of Lowe’s Give Back program.

This year, some employees will spend their eight Give Back hours to help a few other organizations and volunteers paint the No. 2 Fire Station on South Missouri 5 not far from Lowe’s on Saturday starting at 6:00 a.m.

The Give Back program allows Lowe’s employees to take what amounts to a good deeds day. Employees pick a local non-profit organization at which they volunteer for up to eight hours without being docked for missing work at Lowe’s.

“It’s mostly about our employees getting to give back and getting to do something together and being a part of something bigger than just coming to work everyday,” said Renee Durbin, assistant store manager at Lowe’s Home Improvement store in Lebanon.

Last year Lowe’s had to say no to a request from Fire Chief Sam Schneider for a Lowe’s Heroes project because of a prior commitment to the S.C.A.N. organization, Supporters of Children with Additional Needs.
