Over 25-thousand dollars in renovations were completed at The Salvation Army of Rutherford and Cannon Counties as part of the Lowe's Heroes Project.
Twenty-five employees spent three days refurbishing the kitchen, dining room and male dormitory bathrooms earlier this month. Additionally, they gave the front lobby a fresh look with new paint and flooring and upgraded the outdoor playground equipment and fencing.
Last year, the local Salvation Army provided 11,784 night of lodging through their 50-bed life recovery homeless shelter and prepared and served over 40,000 meals though its daily community meal.
The staff at the Salvation Army would like to thank volunteers from the Murfreesboro and Smyrna Lowe's locations as well as six others across Middle Tennessee, who participated in the renovations.
