Hammering home community pride

The newly renovated Fred Stover Sports Complex in Tavares. Thanks to the Lowe’s Heroes Program It’s time to play ball on the newly renovated Fred Stover Sports Complex in Tavares.

Thanks to the Lowe’s Heroes Program, a companywide initiative that gives employees opportunities to support local community improvement projects, each dugout at the complex’s four fields was reroofed and refurbished.

The four fields serve 25,000 children and adults each year through a variety of baseball and softball programs. In addition, the Tavares High School junior varsity and varsity baseball and softball teams use the complex. Though the facility was well maintained, budget constraints did not allow for major replacements or repairs.

Lowe’s employees provided volunteer labor, and the stores in Leesburg, Lady Lake, and Mount Dora donated the necessary tools and materials. Ridgeline Construction and provided oversight for the project, which saved the city approximately $10,000.


The Lowe’s Foundation has provided more than $1 million to support large Heroes projects throughout the country.
