84 Lumber increases ‘giving’ back this holiday season

By HBSDealer Staff - 11/30/2020

84 Lumber said is taking holiday giving to a new level this year. 

The company announced today that it is donating to 24 different charities every day in December, starting on Giving Tuesday all the way through Christmas Eve, giving a total of $84,084. 

Each charity is being gifted a different amount, and 84 Lumber is revealing each donation daily on social media through a 24 Days of Giving digital advent calendar.

“It feels more important than ever this year to give back to our communities, and what better time than the holiday season,” said 84 Lumber Vice President of Marketing Amy Smiley. “This year was a record-breaking sales year for 84 Lumber, and we are proud to have the opportunity to go above and beyond for several charities that we care about.”

The 24 Days of Giving campaign wraps up a full year of giving back for the company. Throughout 2020, 84 Lumber donated nearly $1 million in monetary and materials donations, including a $500,000 donation to the Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, 84 mammograms to local women during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a tiny house to a military veteran in needand a home makeover to assist a 13-year-old with disabilities.

In previous years, 84 Lumber has participated in Giving Tuesday as well as various toy and food drive campaigns during the holiday season. This year’s 24 Days of Giving charities were nominated by 84 Lumber associates around the country, then carefully selected by a donations committee at the company’s team headquarters.

“From supporting our troops to providing food for families, and of course building homes for those in need, we are giving back in a variety of ways this year,” said Smiley. “We hope to make a big difference in our communities around the country, and we hope you’ll follow along on our company Instagram and Facebook pages!”

To follow the 24 Days of Giving, follow 84 Lumber on Instagram and Facebook. The company will post each day either on stories or as permanent posts, revealing individual donations.

84 Lumber achieved $4 billion in annual sales for the first time in company history in 2020, and it has plans to continue expanding into new and existing markets in 2021.

The company is the largest privately-held U.S. pro dealer and operates more than 250 locations in 30 states, including stores, component manufacturing plants, custom door shops, custom millwork shops and engineered wood product centers.
