Lumber Liquidators Provides Aid To Typhoon Haiyan Survivors

TOANO, Va., Nov. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, is helping to provide tents and lifesaving aid for families affected by Typhoon Haiyan.

The donation was facilitated through ShelterBox USA, a nonprofit organization that provides emergency shelter and life-saving equipment to survivors of natural disasters and other humanitarian crises around the world. Since 2010, Lumber Liquidators has donated more than $150,000 to help the organization sustain its mission to support 50,000 families annually.  

ShelterBox USA delivers compact kits and other emergency supplies tailored to the needs of disaster survivors. They distribute boxes of aid and other supplies to displaced families to help them endure the immediate aftermath of a catastrophe. The boxes contain essential supplies such as tents, blankets, tool kits, water purification equipment, stoves and children's activity kits. Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox USA has provided emergency shelter for people in the aftermath of more than 200 disasters in 90 countries.

"We are incredibly grateful for the generous support of our long-time partner, Lumber Liquidators," commented Emily Sperling, ShelterBox USA President. "They immediately took action, which is allowing us to bring shelter and hope to Typhoon Haiyan survivors as quickly as possible."   

Lumber Liquidators supports ShelterBox USA 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. 

Robert M. Lynch, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lumber Liquidators, remarked, "It is difficult to imagine the devastation for families that lose homes in natural disasters. Our donation is a small step to help the people of the Philippines, but we hope our actions will continue to raise awareness. We are proud to support an organization like ShelterBox USA that helps families cope as they work to get back on their feet."
