 AU Business Students Receive Grant from Lowe’s Charitable and Educational Foundation

The 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.
