[WILKES COUNTY, NC July 21, 2021] — Anchor Ridge is thrilled to be one of the 100 impact projects that are the cornerstone of 100 Hometowns, an initiative to celebrate Lowe’s centennial. Lowe’s received more than 2,200 submissions to the 100 Hometowns program, which invited people across the country to nominate their hometown projects in need. The 100 Hometowns program will complete 100 projects across 37 states that rebuild areas reeling from natural disasters, repair critical housing, restore beloved community centers, and revive green spaces. The 100 Hometowns projects span urban, rural and suburban communities and will benefit an array of community members, from toddlers, teens and seniors to veterans, small business owners, students, and more. This program will renovate and make many needed repairs to areas of the Anchor Ridge Community Center in North Wilkesboro, NC, which serves hundreds of families on a monthly basis.
Anchor Ridge, an outreach of Josh Paul Ministries, is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) charity based in North Wilkesboro, North Carolina bringing help and hope to Appalachian families throughout Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Tennessee, and north Georgia by providing food, hygiene items, shelter, household goods and more provided by our gracious donors and strategic partners.
