HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - The walls may look a little bare at the Calvary Center for the Boys and Girls Club, but they won't stay bare for long. Thanks to Lowe's with a $50,000 contribution to help them renovate the building.

"We want to help them spend that money and get more bang for their buck," said Scott Franklin, store manager at the Lowe's off North Memorial Parkway.

With some new paint and much needed updates...

"All of it that we're remodeling is going to be for furthering education," said Franklin. "Either getting the children ready for college or for some sort of career."

It's part of an initiative called Renovation Across the Nation. It grants 50 clubs around the country, and this center was the lucky pick for the entire state of Alabama.

"They can come home after school each day and have this extended learning experience in their own community," said Patrick Wynn, President of the North Alabama chapter. "It means a lot for our kids."

The club is expected to finish the renovation process by the end of 2016.
