84 Lumber has donated $30,000 worth of home building materials for Marine Sgt. Marcus Dandrea, who was severely wounded in Afghanistan in 2011.

On  July 9th, Dandrea received the keys to his newly completed home in Haymarket, Va. The home has been provided by Homes for Our Troops, a non-profit organization that builds mortgage-free, specially adapted homes nationwide for severely injured veterans in the years since 9-11 to enable them to rebuild their lives. This new barrier-free home is customized to meet the needs of Dandrea and his family.

Dandrea lost both of his legs on February 24, 2011, in an IED blast during his second deployment in Sangin, Afghanistan.

“At 84 Lumber, we have always supported our nation’s armed forces and those who give back to protect our country, like Marine Sergeant Marcus Dandrea,” said Maggie Hardy Magerko, president and owner of 84 Lumber. “We hope that Marcus’ new home will provide him with comfort and will help him rebuild his life in the spirit of Homes for Our Troops’ mission.”
