Lowe’s Home Improvement Comes Through – Ponies Up $750,000 for Young Community Developers, Inc

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Union-pleasing workforce training is in the offing now that Lowe’s ponied up their long-romised three-quarters of a mil.

(Let’s hope Lowe’s, when it finally opens down on Bayshore sometime before year’s end, doesn’t get into the business of selling City workers $9,580(!) BBQ grills like that one time with Cole’s Hardware…)

Now, who’s going to spend all this corporate largess? Young Community Developers, Inc., per this recent disclosure at SFGov.
