Business Students Receive Grant from Lowe’s
Charitable and Educational Foundation
Anderson University Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) Team recently received a
grant from the Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation in the amount of
$2,000. This grant was used to improve the Salvation Army Shelter in Anderson, SC.
The SIFE Team had a group
of over 20 students and faculty members work to update their current
playground; add safety features to the area; create a patio for the enjoyment
of those in the shelter; improve the basketball court, grill, and picnic area;
and plant a garden to supply food throughout the summer.
“We are very excited about
the opportunity to renovate the playground facility at the Salvation Army
Shelter,” said Quintin Price, a sophomore business student and manager of the
SIFE team’s efforts. “We are grateful to the Lowe’s Foundation for providing us
the funds needed to benefit this vital nonprofit organization in the Anderson community.”
The SIFE Team will be
competing in Kansas City, Missouri in May for an opportunity to receive an
additional $5,000 from the Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation to
continue their community improvement efforts.
