On Sept. 10, volunteers from several Lowe’s stores ripped up the old (and very rotten) deck at one of the Acres of Diamonds residences in Duvall (the facility has two side-by-side homes) and replaced it with a brand-new one. The approximately $10,000 project was provided free to the transitional facility for homeless women and children.
Lowe’s Human Resources Manager Jim Wilde says the effort was part of a volunteer program, called the "Heroes" program, that does outreach into communities to connect with nonprofits to help with any needs they may have.
"This was a big project so we went together with several stores to get it done," said Wilde. "It’s a lifelong deck."
