Ground is broken at the Hershel “Woody” Williams VA Medical Center for the first Fisher House in West Virginia.

84 Lumber participated in the ground-breaking ceremony for West Virginia’s first Fisher House, set to be built at the Hershel “Woody” Williams VA Medical Center in Huntington. When it opens, it will provide temporary housing at no cost for families whose loved ones are being treated at the facility.  When complete, the 13,270-square-foot house will feature 16 suites as well as communal areas for cooking, dining, relaxing and laundry.

84 Lumber recently launched a national partnership with Fisher House Foundation to show its continued support for veterans and their families. In May, the company provided $25,000 to Friends of the Pittsburgh Fisher House and announced an additional $500,000 donation for Fisher House Foundation, which will help build new houses such as the one in Huntington.

“We were honored to donate $100,000 to help bring the Huntington Fisher House to life,” said Amy Smiley, vice president of marketing for 84 Lumber, who also participated in the ceremony. “It will serve countless families over the years during some of their most difficult times. 84 Lumber continues to be a staunch advocate of Fisher House Foundation and the tremendous work they’re doing.”
