Lowe’s Home Improvement has awarded the Town of Mooresville a $100,000 grant to help fund a mural commemorating Mooresville’s 150 years.

This grant is part of the “100 Hometowns” initiative to complete 100 impact projects as part of a $100 million commitment to give back to the communities Lowe’s serves.

“We are excited and grateful that Lowe’s chose to invest in our public art project out of so many worthy projects all across the nation,” said Pam Reidy, the town’s parks & recreation director. “Lowe’s is truly investing in hometowns, including their own hometown of Mooresville. We appreciate their generosity and look forward to unveiling a new addition to Mooresville’s public art.”

The Public Arts Committee will oversee the project which must be completed by November 2022.

Last week, Lowe’s revealed the 100 community-nominated impact projects that have been selected as part of this year’s Lowe’s Hometowns program, with 2022 serving as the first of a five-year, $100 million commitment to the communities it serves. With projects spanning 40 states and Washington, D.C., Lowe’s will help restore and revitalize spaces that serve as the hubs and heartbeats of communities, including neighborhood housing, parks, community centers and much more.

Lowe’s Hometowns will support the completion of 100 community-nominated impact projects across 40 states and Washington, D.C.

Through the 100 Hometowns initiative in 2021, more than 1,850 Lowe’s associates volunteered nearly 12,000 hours across 111 Red Vest Day volunteer events.
