Building Hope

Being a good corporate citizen goes beyond donating money and materials - it means having a commitment and a vision. At 84 Lumber, we believe it's our responsibility to help those individuals and organizations most in need, or that can make the greatest positive impact. We do this through the 84 Lumber Building Hope campaign.

Since our founding in 1956, 84 Lumber has actively supported local, regional and national charitable organizations ranging from Volunteer Fire Departments, to chapters of the Red Cross and United Way, to the national efforts of Habitat for Humanity.

Justin Jennings Foundation

Justin Jennings died of brain cancer at the age of 19. To honor his commitment to helping others, his family started the Justin Jennings Foundation. 84 Lumber played a critical role with the foundation and the Contractors for a Cause group of Sussex County Delaware, in building a multi-level handicapped accessible beach house in historic Bethany Beach, DE.  This house, offered through the foundation, is made available at no cost to families who have a member suffering from cancer.
