Lowe’s volunteers upgrade Roebling House

The Roebling/Party House received a much-needed facelift in early December, courtesy of the Lowe’s community service program called “Lowe’s Heros.”

The project was directed by Molly and Owen Riggs from the Abercorn Street store. The couple said they have done annual projects around town including the Ronald McDonald house but this year wanted to look around for a new recipient.
The work was completed over two days by 15-20 volunteers from the store. Materials were all donated by Lowe’s, the project was free for Skidaway Institute.

The team replaced the kitchen cabinets, counters, sink and installed new vinyl flooring. Upstairs they installed lauan plywood to the railing to screen from below.

They also replaced the flooring in the bathrooms as well as new toilets and vanities. The volunteers also added a fresh coat of bright white paint on the downstairs walls that brightened up the room.
