EIGHTY FOUR, PA. – When moving into a new house, many homeowners find small treasures left behind by the previous owners. When James and Clarrisa Munford moved into their new home, however, they came across a much more valuable treasure than usual: $25,000 worth of gold and silver coins.
After hearing the Munford’s story, 84 Lumber decided to honor them for being an excellent example of integrity in their community. On Friday, December 11, the company appeared on the Drew Barrymore Show and surprised the couple with $25,000 – and this time, it was theirs to keep.
The Munfords could tell the coins were worth a lot of money, but they never even considered keeping them. They knew they belonged to the previous owners of their house, so they returned the coins right away.
“Our gift to the Munfords is our way of saying ‘thank you’ for being an amazing example of honesty and integrity – values that mean a lot to us,” said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy Knox. “We hope this gift will help them with any updates they have planned for turning their new house into a home.”
84 Lumber is passionate about giving back to its communities. In fact, in 2020 alone, the company made over $1 million in charitable donations, including giving back to several military veterans and veteran organizations. James and Clarrisa Munford are both U.S. Army Veterans, which is just one more reason 84 Lumber was excited to surprise them with the $25,000 gift.
