BUILDERS SQUARE AND THE U.S. ARMY TEAM UP TO PROVIDE TEMPORARY PROTECTION FOR HURRICANE ANDREW VICTIMS

 BUILDERS SQUARE AND THE U.S. ARMY TEAM UP TO PROVIDE TEMPORARY
 PROTECTION FOR HURRICANE ANDREW VICTIMS
 WHAT: Builders Square and the U.S. Army will make temporary repairs to hundreds of hurricane-ravaged homes in Kendall, Homestead and Cutler Ridge, Fla., beginning today. Eight truckloads of building materials -- valued at over $150,000 and donated by Builders Square -- will arrive at the Army's Humanitarian Depot at Homestead Air Force Base this afternoon. The 2nd Battalion of the 82nd Airborne Infantry and the 4th Battalion of the 10th Mountain Division will use the materials to cover the roofs of residents who are still seeking temporary protection.
 WHEN: Today, Sept. 11, between 2 and 3 p.m.
 WHERE: U.S. Army Humanitarian Depot at Homestead Air Force Base.
 WHO: Builders Square community relations manager, Greg Gallaspy, along with Lt. Col. David J. Mattes of the 82nd Airborne.
 WHY: Builders Square, a national chain of warehouse-style home- improvement stores, operates eight stores in the Miami area. As a leading provider of home building products, Builders Square is perfectly poised to participate in the rebuilding effort.
 HOW: Builders Square has teamed with select vendors, including C. Itoh, Idaho Timber and Stanley Tools, to get the building materials shipped and distributed. The materials include: 18 pallets of nails, 2 million square feet of plastic sheathing, five truckloads of 2-by-2-by-8 lumber, 500 Stanley hammers, 500 nail aprons and 500 hats.
 CONTACT: Lisa Vallee-Smith, 201-509-1428, or Dorothy Langan, 313-567-5042, both of Anthony M. Franco, Inc., for Builders Square.
