The City of Boynton Beach and the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation (LCEF) are pleased to announce a major gift in support of the City of Boynton Beach’s mission to engage individuals in building and sustaining vibrant communities.
The Lowe’s/Keep America Beautiful Community Improvement Grant of $5,000 is one of 75 merit-based grants awarded nationally to support grassroots community improvement projects including community gardens, tree plantings, litter and debris cleanups, recycling programs, park and playground restorations, and beautification efforts.
Lowe’s/Keep America Beautiful Community Improvement Grant will provide funding for the Mangrove Walk at the Marina Enhancement Project. The City of Boynton Beach is excited to have received this grant award and is looking forward to working with students and Lowe’s Heroes to plant littoral plants and trees at the Mangrove Walk at the Marina storm water pond. “We are thankful for this opportunity to improve, inform and interact with the community while enhancing this unique environment”, said Glenda Hall, City of Boynton Beach Forestry & Grounds Manager.
“Keep America Beautiful is proud of the positive impact that the City of Boynton Beach’s project will have in the community,” said Keep America Beautiful President and CEO Matt McKenna. “We are truly grateful to Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation for its support and leadership that is being demonstrated in community sustainability.”
