Fort Collins, CO, February 20, 2019 -Boys & Girls Clubs of Larimer County announced today they received a $50,000 grant from Lowe’s to renovate the teen center at the Fort Collins Club, Lancer Drive. The grant is part of Renovation Across the Nation, a program between Boys & Girls Clubs of America and
Lowe’s that provides one Club in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. with a grant and volunteer support from Lowe’s to complete much-needed improvements and renovations.
