LINCOLNTON, N.C. United Way of Lincoln County is hosting their annual Day of Action on Thursday, August 22 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. This year’s Day of Action includes installing a community garden at the Oaklawn Community Center and working on landscaping projects at Hesed House of Hope.

Atrium Health and Duke Energy each provided a $1,000 grant to support the Day of Action projects. Lowe’s Home Improvement of Lincolnton is providing materials for the Day of Action projects and also sending a team of associates to work the event as part of their Lowe’s Heroes program.

“Lowe's embraces teamwork as a core value and a key ingredient in maintaining an engaged work force. We believe that by working together, Lowe's Home Improvement can improve our community,” said Lincolnton Store Manager Jake Rollings. “We’re proud to support the United Way Day of Action and look forward to working alongside our friends and neighbors on these community-building projects.”

Transforming lives one community at a time has been the mission of Lowe's Heroes since the volunteer program began more than 10 years ago. The program encourages employees to team together, adopt a volunteer project with a local nonprofit organization or K–12 public school and make a difference.

Additional primary sponsors include Lincoln County Master Gardeners, NC Cooperative Extension, Mid-Atlantic Erosion Control, Inc. and Lincoln Co. Government. Master Gardener Don Taylor has been instrumental in preparing plans for the community garden build in Oaklawn. Taylor has prepared drawings, project outlines, equipment and supply lists and even led a gardening class for the Oaklawn Community kids on Tuesday, August 13. Taylor will be on-site for the Day of Action to share his expertise.

“We are blessed in Lincoln County to have businesses, organizations and individuals passionate about serving others and improving lives,” said United Way executive director Kathy Vinzant. “In this one project-packed day, we hope to have 100 volunteers come together from all over Lincoln County to show support for the Oaklawn Community and Hesed House of Hope.”

United Way is still seeking additional volunteers to support the Day of Action projects. More information and a volunteer sign-up form is available at: http://unitedwayoflincolncounty.org/dayofaction2019
