EIGHTY FOUR, Pa. (Aug. 18, 2021) – This week, 84 Lumber continued its long-standing support of the Boy Scouts of America by donating $148,840.84 to the Westmoreland-Fayette Council during its 31st Annual Joe Hardy 84 Lumber Golf Outing. The company, along with its vendor partners, presented the check on August 16th at 84 Lumber’s sister company, Nemacolin Resort, in Farmington, Pennsylvania.
The two-day event featured premier golf at Nemacolin’s Shepherd’s Rock and Mystic Rock courses and hosted nearly 300 attendees, including 84 Lumber vendors and associates, as well as troop leaders and scouts from the Westmoreland-Fayette Council. The highlight of the event was the dinner reception, where 84 Lumber presented the check to the scouts in attendance.
“My father first hosted this event more than 30 years ago, and we are proud to continue the tradition year after year,” said Maggie Hardy, president of 84 Lumber. “It’s truly an honor to continue supporting the Boy Scouts community and to see how this event changes the lives of many young people.”
The Westmoreland-Fayette Council has received nearly $2.5 million from 84 Lumber since 1989. The funds have helped build programs that teach scouts valuable life lessons and leadership skills. In addition to the Westmoreland-Fayette Council, 84 Lumber supports the Boy Scouts on a national scale.
During the dinner reception, 84 Lumber also named Hampton Lumber as its 2021 Vendor of the Year. The recognition is based on various factors, including sales growth and above-and-beyond service.
“We are thankful for the support of our vendors and partners each year during this important event,” said Hardy. “We look forward to continuing the tradition for many years to come!”
