 MOBILE HABITAT FOR HUMANITY RECEIVES $50,000 WORTH
 OF BUILDING MATERIALS FOR HABITAT HOMES
 MOBILE, Ala., April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Depot (NYSE: HD) today announced the donation of $50,000 worth of building materials to the Mobile affiliate of Habitat for Humanity, a national organization that provides affordable housing for low-income families.
 "In relocating our Government Boulevard store to the Mont Limar location, we identified $50,000 worth of building materials, which will go to the Habitat for Humanity in Mobile," said Suzanne Apple, director of community affairs for The Home Depot. "We've supported affordable housing programs all over the country, and donating the materials to Habitat in Mobile was a great way for us to become involved in the community."
 "Home Depot's building materials gave us the impetus we needed," said Sallie Hunter, a spokeswoman for Habitat/Mobile. "Good, hardworking people deserve a decent place to live. Habitat is out to eliminate shacks."
 Habitat/Mobile has already constructed two homes and as a result of the donation will begin construction immediately on four more in the Lecren Street area and on other donated property. Several area churches, businesses and many other volunteers have also given Habitat/Mobile the time and funding needed to give the program a big push.
 In addition to receiving low monthly mortgage payments with no interest, the Habitat families are required to work at least 150 hours on their home, attend 10 homeownership seminars and establish a good record of making their payments and maintaining their home before it is sold to them.
