    TOANO, Va., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, has helped create safe and affordable homes in partnership with local families through its ongoing support of Habitat for Humanity affiliates.

    Lumber Liquidators' latest support included donating a large selection of tools to the Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg affiliate. The tools will be used to build new homes as well as rehabilitate existing homes in partnership with low-income families in Hampton, James City County and Newport News, Va. The affiliate is on schedule to build nine new homes and rehabilitate four in the local community in 2014 alone.

    Michael K. Copeland, Director of ReStores at Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg, said, "Lumber Liquidators' recent tool donation is so valuable to us. It is because of the generosity of companies like Lumber Liquidators that we are able to continue our mission of eliminating substandard housing in our community."

    Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg is one of more than 1,500 affiliates of Habitat for Humanity, a nonprofit housing organization that strives to break the cycle of poverty by constructing, rehabilitating and preserving homes. In addition, the organization enables families with limited resources to make improvements to their homes. Since 1976, the organization has helped more than four million people in more than 70 countries.

    Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lumber Liquidators, remarked, "Lumber Liquidators empowers do-it-yourself homeowners through its line of high quality tools and flooring. It is an honor to put our products in the hands of volunteers who use the tools and flooring to create warm and safe homes for families."

    Lumber Liquidators supports Habitat For Humanity through its philanthropic program, Lay It Forward. The guiding principle of Lay It Forward is supporting organizations that will benefit generations to come, a vision that also drives the enduring quality of Lumber Liquidators' products. Installing a hardwood floor is an investment by homeowners – it lasts for years and grows in character as an element of a home's beauty. By sustaining the Lay It Forward program now, Lumber Liquidators believes its investment will have a similar and lasting impact.
