Lowe’s Home Improvement Store of Ames has been a big supporter of nonprofit programs in Nevada. When they see a need, they jump in to help. The support Lowe’s provided to Cubbie’s Cupboard through a recent $500 donation will help ensure that the school-based food bank can continue to provide food and hygiene supplies to its students and families who need assistance. John Kannel, a Lowe’s employee and Nevada resident, has gone above and beyond to help the community. He has coordinated these types of charitable contributions in the past, as well as offering supplies and labor to other projects. Pictured for the presentation of the check are (in back, from left) Elizabeth Gindt, Jackie Duden, Tucker Johnson, Nicholas Wahlert, Angela Ruden, Peighton Kannel, John Kannel; and (in front) Brett Barker and Logan Kannel.
