For Mother’s Day last week, 84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held building materials supplier, appeared on CBS’ Daytime Emmy Award-winning talk show THE TALK to surprise a single mother of two with $20,000.
Amber and her two children have gone through difficult times, but that has not discouraged Amber from working hard, supporting her children and giving back to her community. Amber works at her local Covenant House, which helps homeless youth and children. She considers herself a mother of not only her two children, but also the 100 children at the Covenant House. She is referred to as “Mama” at work, and she brings a positive atmosphere wherever she goes. She also opened her own candle business and constantly sacrifices herself to give her children the best.
“When we heard Amber’s story, we were so excited for the chance to honor her this Mother’s Day,” said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy Knox. “84 Lumber is all about working hard and giving back to our communities, and Amber shares those passions with us. We hope this donation makes a positive impact on her and her family.”
Amber shared her story on THE TALK, where she was also surprised with the $20,000 check from 84 Lumber. To view the surprise, visit: https://www.facebook.com/84lumber/videos/1030552484554004/.
