Town Lake Animal Center Beautified Thanks to Lowe’s Heroes

by Marketing • Posted in: Volunteering

On Tuesday, October 20, 2015 – Lowe’s Bee Caves location hosted their annual Lowe’s Heroes Day volunteer project at Town Lake Animal Center. The facelift our shelter received was thanks to the hard work of over 75 volunteers who shared part of their day with APA! to help improve the aesthetics of the shelter. A huge thank you goes to Lowe’s Home Improvement for sending us their Heroes for the day and for providing the mulch, fencing and all the supplies needed to complete the projects. Thanks to the generosity of Sherwin Williams we were also supplied with the paint needed for a much needed update to our buildings. Check out all the great before, during and after photos from the day.
