Another reason having representation all the way the top matters!
Home improvement giant Lowe’s will grant $25 million dollars among minority-owned small businesses. Lowe’s CEO Marvin Ellison is one of only four black men to helm a Fortune 500 company surely the need to help these businesses is close to his heart.
The grants are just another step in a $50 million effort to support communities during the pandemic says, Ellison. In March, Ellison announced Lowe’s would provide $25 million to support workers, customers, and communities. That effort included donating $10 million to get personal protective equipment materials to frontline medical workers.
Between COVID _19 and protest across the nation, minority-owned small businesses’ are taking severe hits. Kudos to Lowe’s for answering the call.
