84 Lumber Partners with The DeAngelo Williams Foundation For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Collaboration Aims to Support Research and Highlight Visibility of
Important Cause

EIGHTY FOUR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When you’re an iconic global brand based in Pittsburgh, and you want to
drive support for those impacted by breast cancer, having someone like
DeAngelo Williams playing right in your backyard is ideal. Together, 84
and Williams will partner to bring awareness to breast cancer

84 Lumber, which serves as a long-time sponsor of the Pittsburgh
Steelers, is partnering with the organization’s star running back to
donate $15,000 to The

all lost their battle with breast cancer before they turned 50. Through
his namesake philanthropic initiative, he has made headlines for his
vocal activism including challenging the NFL’s uniform policy on wearing
pink all season, donating mammograms to women in need, and raising money
through shirt sales.

“I’m excited to partner with a company like 84 Lumber, who shares the
same values of giving back in the communities they have ties to,”
Williams said. “When they reached out about how they could help my
foundation’s Breast Cancer initiatives, it was a no-brainer and I
couldn’t be more appreciative.”

In addition to contributions to the foundation, 84 Lumber will also host
Williams at their company headquarters in Eighty Four where he will
speak with current employees about his experiences with breast cancer
and help educate them on the need for preventative care and early

program strengthens our ability to help customers and local
residents,” said Becky Mancuso, vice president, marketing and public
relations at 84 Lumber. “This is a perfect fit for us, our employees,
and our community.”
