The sounds of power tools filled the air as the historic Port Isabel Firehouse received a much needed makeover, courtesy of the Lowe’s Store in Harlingen. According to their human resources manager, Todd Harris, the PI Firehouse was selected as the recipient of the Lowe’s Heroes Project, an event they undertake every year.
Harris explained the process of the project. “We go out into the community and select a non-profit that is in need, then we give them 2,500 dollars’ worth of products from the store. We give them all the materials at cost, then we do the work on the project for the chosen organization.”
Todd went into detail about what improvements were being completed at the Firehouse. “Our renovations include building a new kitchen for them, and painting. The paint was actually donated by Valspar and Sherman Williams, so those were additional individual donations.
