SHP Lumber Drive
We’re super excited for our new fundraising program that will be such a great opportunity for SHP and more importantly, each one of your chapters. Not only will it save your chapter thousands of dollars, but it will help you build more beds for more kids in your town!
We created a Lumber Drive Pitch Packet to take into your store and share with your Lowe’s Manager. You can order the packet for free and have it shipped to you or you can download the packet and print locally. This packet will help explain to your Lowe’s manager what the Lumber Drive is and how it will work, in easy, visual steps and examples. Once you’ve received approval, you can order your Lumber Drive Kit from the store.
Watch the video below for all the details about the Lumber Drive and how the program works. It’s full of great details to help you launch your Lumber Drive in your town!

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I record this In-Kind Donation in DonorPerfect?
You’ll need to record your donated lumber in donor perfect. Please follow the same instructions for all other in kind donations with these specifications. Use donor #705 “Lowe’s Home Improvement”. Please remember to put $0 in the Gift amount and use $100 per bed when calculating the In Kind Donation Value/Fair Market Value. The gift narrative is where you’ll specify how many beds worth of lumber you received, for example “10 beds worth of lumber”. Last bit of instructions is to use the campaign dropdown to select “Lowe’s Lumber Drive”
