Please tell your readers how easy it is to walk into a Ventura County Lowe’s and make a donation to help the victims of hurricane Katrina. Lowe’s was the first corporation to say it would match up to $1 million donations made at their stores by the public. The money will then be donated to the Red Cross.
Being curious if the Ventura Lowe’s would have the information to actually do this, I went to their store. Each register has a small sign complete with bar codes so the donation can be readily made. Checks are made out to Lowe’s, and one can note that it is for the Red Cross. Lowe’s gives the donor a receipt that states, “Donation.”
Kudos to Lowe’s.
Hopefully, Lowe’s example will be followed by other retail corporations.
