The Transition Living Classroom recently painted our apartments thanks to a generous donation from Lowe’s

Painting is a valuable life and work skill incorporating teamwork, social, organization, and communication tlcskills. The TLC program received a generous donation from Lowe’s of South Lebanon. The store provided paint, brushes, drop cloths, and many other paint supplies. Our program, and the Warren County ESC cannot thank Lowe’s enough.

Having a community partner support our program in such a giving way is truly appreciated. We want to personally thank Ashlee Chambers, from the Lowe’s of South Lebanon Store, for assisting us with this project. She gathered all the materials for us and even came to the apartments to determine what our needs were.

Again, thank you to Lowe’s for their generosity and caring. The apartments look great!
