Behind the Red Vest

Recognize these red vests? The red vests are symbols of the helpful faces at Lowe’s that help make your home and garden beautiful. However, the red vest also represents so much more!  Lowe’s has a long history of generously providing support to local nonprofits in their hometown of Charlotte, helping to create  a stronger community for everyone.

For the past four years, SHARE Charlotte and Lowe’s have partnered together on #GivingTuesdayCLT.  #GivingTuesdayCLT  is the local celebration of Giving Tuesday, the global day of giving, inspiring our community to find and give to local nonprofits. Since 2018, over $15.5M has been raised on this single day of giving in Charlotte! 

To enhance and challenge giving, Lowe’s is providing three hundred $50 gift cards to be used as a match for any $50 or more online donation given to a nonprofit  on  #GivingTuesdayCLT through

The $60K in gift card matches over the past four years have allowed local nonprofits to purchase critical items from Lowe’s that have helped their organizations with projects such as:

  • Repairing the Raptor Trail  at the  Carolina Raptor Center which displays over 30 different species of raptors in Latta Nature Preserve.
  • Building garden beds at Anne Springs Close Greenway which is a 2,100-acre natural area preserved for outdoor recreation and native wildlife.
  • Purchasing tools for the Charlotte Tool Bank which is a nonprofit tool-lending program that provides low-cost  access to an inventory of tools so organizations don’t have to incur the expense of tools.

At Lowe’s, we believe in action over words. Over the past few years, we have built positive and intentional relationships across the community and will continue to do so.  We are honored to call so many impactful and inspiring nonprofits our partners.” says Betsy Conway, Director of Community Relations. “We enjoy partnering with SHARE Charlotte to support #GivingTuesdayCLT because it allows us to inspire generosity in our hometown community and impact even more amazing nonprofit organizations.”

SHARE Charlotte is excited to celebrate our 5th year in partnering with Lowe’s through this year’s #GivingTuesdayCLT theme,  “The Power of WE”.  Lowe’s is a company that embodies this strength and inspires our community to support nonprofit organizations who are the true heroes every day of the year.
