Home improvement retailer Lowe's — with help from its employees and customers — is attempting to raise millions to assist the Muscular Dystrophy Association provide critical service programs and accessible summer camp experiences for individuals and families affected by neuromuscular diseases across the country.
Lowe’s teamed up with MDA in 2001 for its Shamrocks program in a number of states and became an MDA national sponsor in 2007. Lowe’s and its customers raised more than $7.7 million in 2012, setting a record for retailers supporting the Shamrocks campaign. To date, Lowe’s has raised nearly $30 million for MDA.
Lowe's has local stores at 19601 Nordhoff St., Northridge; 8383 Topanga Canyon Blvd., West Hills, and 13500 Paxton St., Pacoima.
Through March 31, Lowe’s customers can purchase and sign $1 green, $5 gold and $20 platinum Shamrocks mobiles. Many Lowe’s employees decorate their store walls or create and assemble creative and amazing displays with Shamrocks to spotlight customers’ support of MDA.
“Thanks to the hard work of Lowe’s employees and their loyal customers, MDA families have benefited greatly through the years,” said Kevin Moran, MDA executive vice president and chief business development officer. "We’re honored to work with Lowe’s to offer help and hope to those we serve through the simple, yet meaningful, act of buying a Shamrock.”
