For the last 20 years, Lowes Foods has joined together with the United Way and focused on fundraising within the communities in which Lowes Foods serves. This year, with the help of the communities, customers, and employees, Lowes Foods launched their 2011 United Way Campaign. The campaign will run from August 8th through September 3rd, and the theme for campaign will be “Locally United”.

“Together we can build stronger communities and give local support that will benefit those in need.” states Lowes Foods’ President Steve Hall.

The goal of the United Way is to create lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of problems in our community. Donations stay right in the local communities in which they are made, and Lowes Foods is proud to give you the opportunity to give back. It's easy for you to donate with two dollar and five dollar donation coupons at all Lowes Foods stores. Simply ask any cashier how you can give to United Way today. Together we can be “Locally United” to improve lives and build a stronger community.
