RONA Foundation presents cheques to non-profits

The RONA Foundation, which oversees the philanthropic activities of RONA inc., which operates the Lowe’s, RONA, Réno-Dépôt, and Dick’s Lumber banners, will present a total of $500,000 to six non-profit organizations (NPOs) as part of its new Build from the Heart program.  

Launched on May 11 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the RONA Foundation, Build from the Heart aims to support NPOs in carrying out projects to revitalize living environments or make it easier to access housing for Canadian populations in need. Following a call for applications that resulted in more than a hundred applications, a selection committee chose the projects of six NPOs from provinces where RONA has stores. Funds for this program were raised thanks to the generosity of RONA vendors who took part in the RONA Foundation’s annual Golf Day, held in July.  

The organizations supported by the program were Medicine Hat Women’s Shelter Society (Alberta), Turning Points Collaborative Society (British Columbia), Habitat for Humanity Manitoba, Port Colborne Community Association (Ontario), Le Petit Patro des Basses-Laurentides (Quebec), and SOFIA House (Saskatchewan).
