Keep Omaha Beautiful, Inc. Received $5,000 Grant from Lowe’s

August 26th, 2014, Keep Omaha Beautiful, Inc. (KOB) today announced that that Lowe’s has awarded a $5,000 grant to support Keep Omaha Beautiful’s mission to engage individuals in building and sustaining communities.

The Lowe’s Community Partner grant will provide funding for Native Grass Plantings for the I-680 and Center and the 72nd and Center interchange.

Cindy Smilley, Executive Director for Keep Omaha Beautiful said that I-680 & Center along with 72nd & Center interchange will be the prime locations. “We are very grateful for this gift from Lowe’s”.

The Keep Omaha Beautiful grant is one of more than 60 merit-based grants awarded nationally by Lowe’s to community based affiliates of Keep America Beautiful (KAB) to support grassroots service projects ranging from building community gardens and planting trees to leading disaster restoration and recycling program programs.

KAB affiliates and partnering organizations received support from Lowe’s for 180 initiatives through the first two years of the KAB/Lowes grant program. Through this partnership 130,000 acres of parks and public land have been cleaned; more than 886,000 flowers and bulbs have been planted; nearly 200 playgrounds/recreational areas have been restored; more than 600 edible and community gardens have been planted.

Over the course of the partnership, KAB and Lowe’s have brought together more than 33,000 volunteers and 900 Lowe’s Heroes. Together, they’ve contributed 170,000 volunteer hours in their respective communities.

Keep Omaha Beautiful is 55 years old, one of Omaha’s oldest environmental organizations with the mission of litter reduction, beautification and environmental education.
