Rebuilding Together Colorado Springs and Lowe's Ramp It Up for Disabled Homeowners

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) -

WHAT:   Rebuilding Together Colorado Springs and Lowe's have joined forces
        to build wheelchair ramps for disabled homeowners in the Colorado
        Springs area.  More than 25 community volunteers will work to
        install six wheelchairs to benefit seven Colorado Springs
        residents.  Several of the residents suffer from diabetes, one
        resident has cerebral palsy and another resident suffers from
        complications of a car accident.  Without the wheelchair ramps the
        recipients would not be able to leave their homes or live an
        independent lifestyle.

        Lowe's generously provided $66,000 for the "Ramp It Up" project.
        Rebuilding Together Colorado Springs will use this project to
        develop a wheelchair ramp installation guide for national use by
        Rebuilding Together's affiliate network.  Lowe's is a national
        sponsor of Rebuilding Together and has contributed a total of $2
        million dollars over the last two years.

WHO:    Rebuilding Together and Lowe's, along with volunteers from local
        Lowe's stores and the community

WHEN:   Saturday, May 10, 2008

WHERE:  Projects will take place in the Colorado Springs and Fountain
        Communities -- Call to setup Media Interviews and Opportunities
