Roseburg donates first full truckload of lumber from Roanoke Valley Lumber

Roseburg’s new east coast sawmill, Roanoke Valley Lumber, donated its first full truckload of market-ready southern pine lumber to the Halifax County 4-H Rural Life Center’s multi-purpose building. This Center serves as the base for 4-H’s low-cost Summer Day Camp program that serves more than 350 youth each summer, as well as a center for recreation and educational opportunities for citizens.

“This generous donation not only reflects Roseburg’s commitment to our community but also highlights the importance of public-private partnerships in fostering community development,” said Linda Brewer, Vice Chairperson of the Halifax County Board of Commissioners.  “[It] serves as a positive model for how companies can have a meaningful impact in their communities.”

Roseburg is proud to partner with P&S Transportation for the delivery of this load of lumber to the 4-H Rural Life Center so that this important organization can continue its work of safe and positive youth development in North Carolina and beyond.

“We feel fortunate to have built our southern pine lumber mill in such a welcoming community and are thrilled to partner with Halifax County to make this donation to the 4-H Rural Life Center,” said Sarah Smith, Director of Lumber, Retail, and Strategic Marketing for Roseburg. “The Center’s service to the community and its citizens aligns so well with our own commitment to making lives better from the ground up. We can’t wait to see the positive impact the Rural Life Center will have in the area.”
