ST. JACOBS, ON, July 4, 2013 /CNW/ - Home Hardware Stores Limited, along
with its Dealer-Owner network, are working in partnership with the
Canadian Red Cross to provide much needed supplies to support the
continued flood relief efforts in southern Alberta.
"We applaud the tremendous efforts of the Canadian Red Cross during this
time as they work tirelessly to help those most affected by the recent
floods," said Paul Straus, President and CEO, Home Hardware Stores

Alberta are not just short term but rather ongoing. We have helped
Canadian home owners by harnessing Home Hardware's extensive
distribution network to ensure that the essential supplies were
available and delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible. Home
Hardware and its Dealer-Owners will continue to support these
communities as they work to rebuild their homes."
