Lowe’s helps EF-2 tornado victims in Laurel


LAUREL, Del. – In Delaware, people are still trying to do whatever they can to help those affected by the tornado last week. 

On Tuesday, 15 volunteers from local Lowe’s stores made their way to Laurel Town Hall to hand out over 200 buckets filled with free cleaning supplies to Laurel residents.

The goal is to just give a hand up to those who continue to sift through and clean up their homes that were completely destroyed. 

Jared Carson, one of Lowe’s volunteers, tells 47 ABC, “It definitely is something that feels good. Like I said being a part of Lowe’s it’s something that we always do, we like to be a part of that and it makes me feel good being apart of a company that wants to be a part of the community.” 

Last year Lowe’s gave out $4 million  in disaster relief to try and help out when its needed. Left over buckets and cleaning supplies are being stored at Laurel Town Hall in case anyone is still in need.
