GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Greensboro Performing Arts, along with its nonprofit partner Summerfield Performing & Visual Arts, are getting a helping hand this year through the Lowe’s Heroes volunteer program.

Volunteers from all four Greensboro stores began work Monday; painting, updating the bathroom and installing insulation at GPA’s facility on Fleming Road. Kids enrolled at GPA also showed up early to help with the work.

The annual project by Lowe’s Home Improvement is designed to give back to local nonprofit organizations.

Founder Suzanne Vandergrift says the nearly $5,000 in improvements will go a long way.

“I'm thrilled,” Vandergrift said. “I don't know what else to say because it's been such a huge thing. It's very overwhelming, but in a very positive way."

Work at Greensboro Performing Arts will continue Tuesday and is expected to finish before the fall session starts on Friday.
