On November 7th Lowe's employees from around South Florida will meet at the rebuilt home to landscape, fence, and paint it. The work will complete Lowe's year-long commitment to ensuring residents can stay together in the home they have grown up in together.

Once complete, the new home will offer an independent living environment to children in wheelchairs challenged with profound disabilities and provide a home designed for therapeutic treatment and education as well as daily living.

Just days after the August 2008 fire forced the nine individuals with profound disabilities from their home, Steve Piszczynski, Store Manager of the Pompano Beach Lowe's, called the Center to offer Lowe's support.

"Lowe's is always looking for ways to help out our community. When we heard the news on Monday, and after having seen the home first hand weeks before on a visit, we knew we had to do something." Said Piszczynski. "So we got a bunch of the stores from the district to join us and now we have the means to really make a huge impact on the lives of these children."

Lowe's quickly began working with Broward Children's Center on renovating the home once the damage had been assessed and have provided thousands of dollars of donated materials and labor.

"We are deeply grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from Lowe's in helping us ensure these extraordinary young people have a safe and stimulating home where they can live together as a family," said Center CEO Marjorie Evans. "Lowe's has again demonstrated what it means to be a truly civic-minded corporation that cares about those in need in our community."

Broward Children's Center is a private nonprofit based in Pompano Beach, Florida that serves more than 1200 infants, children, and young adults with special health-care needs. Its 12 programs provide medical, educational, and daily living services to some of the most medically fragile children in the world.
