Acres of Diamonds, a transitional shelter for homeless women and their children, raised more than $20,000 in its annual fundraising dinner and auction in October. As a result of the event, seven new monthly donors also signed on to help the Duvall shelter.

The shelter also benefitted from a Lowe’s Hero project this fall, a new, maintenance-free deck to replace a deteriorating deck that had become a safety hazard.

Staff from Lowe’s stores in Bellevue and Monroe donated the materials and spent two weeks constructing the new deck.

Above, Lowe’s volunteers and Acres of Diamonds staff and residents enjoy the newly built deck.
