EIGHTY FOUR, Pennsylvania , December 19, 2023 (press release) –

When Germanna student Sierra Pierce lost her job as a loan officer during the pandemic and found herself with unpaid medical bills and a 7-year-old daughter to support, she knew where to turn. The Germanna Educational Foundation supports a campus food pantry and provides emergency financial aid for students.  It helped pay medical bills, provided food and gift cards for gas. An emergency aid grant helped get her car out of the shop and catch up on rent.

 

EIGHTY FOUR, Pa. (Dec. 19, 2023) – 84 Lumber, the nation’s largest privately held supplier of building materials, is investing in the future of college students by donating $50,000 to Germanna Community College’s Germanna Guarantee Scholarship Program.

Since at least 1999, 84 Lumber has made contributions to Germanna Community College’s Germanna Guarantee Scholarship Program and other initiatives that benefit the program. 84 Lumber’s business partners at Culpeper Wood Preservers and Jefferson Homebuilders are also donating $100,000.

This gift of opportunity will give hope to these students and their families,” said Maggie Hardy, owner and CEO of 84 Lumber. “They’re the promise of America’s tomorrow.”

Located in Locust Grove, Virginia, the community college’s Germanna Guarantee Scholarship Program has assisted students in need of financial assistance for the past 29 years, furthering their education at the college. In the last year alone, more than 500 students were awarded aid, with the average amounting to $1,100 per student. In all, the GGSP has been able to award more than $4 million in scholarships to more than 5,000 students.

“The Germanna Educational Foundation is deeply grateful for the generosity of 84 Lumber with this transformational gift,” said Bruce Davis, special assistant to the president at Germanna Community College.  It will eliminate economic barriers to dozens of students, which keeps them on track for graduation, rather than delaying the process due to a shortfall of money. This is critical for our local economy, helping to create a steady pipeline of people entering the workforce.”
