84 Lumber continues to support Boy Scouts
Although the annual Joe Hardy/84 Lumber Boy Scouts Golf Invitational was canceled this year, the pro dealer still decided to give back through a donation of $50,000.
Since 1989, 84 Lumber has held a tradition of supporting the Boy Scouts of America Westmoreland-Fayette Council.
“The Westmoreland/Fayette Council of the BSA is thankful for its relationship with 84 Lumber,” said Council President Michael B. Delmar. “The support of 84 Lumber has allowed us to bring high-value programs to thousands of young men and women for many years. In this difficult year, 84 Lumber’s generosity stands above and beyond anything anticipated and will allow our Council to continue its mission of serving youth.”
In addition to the Westmoreland-Fayette Council, 84 Lumber also supports the Boy Scouts across the country. Through 84 Lumber’s Building Hope program, the company donates materials to help with Eagle Scout service projects, which serve local communities and are meant to last for many generations.
The company said it has donated nearly $2.5 million to Boy Scouts of American over the past 31 years.
“When my father co-started the 84 Lumber Boy Scouts event 31 years ago, he had no idea that it would continue into 2020 and have such a large impact on the Boy Scouts community, both locally and nationally,” said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy Knox. “It’s truly an honor to continue supporting this cause and watch these scouts do incredible things in our community.”
Founded by Joe Hardy in 1956, and headquartered in Eighty Four, Pa., 84 Lumber Company is the nation’s largest privately-held supplier of building materials, manufactured components, and industry-leading services.
The company operates nearly 250 stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops, and engineered wood product centers in more than 30 states.
