Habitat for Humanity - Harrison County, Miss.
On December 9, 2006, 84 Lumber and the Harrison County Affiliate of Habitat for Humanity held the dedication of 13 homes on South Carolina Ave. in Gulfport, Mississippi. All materials for the homes, as well as seven others built in Gulfport and Blocs, were donated by 84 Lumber following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina.
As part of its 2006 initiative to help the Gulf Coast recover from hurricanes Katrina and Rita, 84 Lumber funded the construction of 10 homes in New Orleans’ Musicians Village in conjunction with the Southern Governors Association (SGA). Musician's Village, located in the devastated 9th Ward, is spearheaded by New Orleans’ musicians, Harry Connick Jr. and Branford Marsalis.
