Tri-State Office Furniture, Inc. and the Pittsburgh Pirates are teaming up to organize a McKees Rocks Community Night at PNC Park.

On Aug. 9th all members of the McKees Rocks community are invited to PNC Park, with a preview event on July 26 at the Sto-Rox Jr./Sr. High School football stadium with games, music, and a guest appearance by the Pirate Parrot and the famous racing Pirates Pierogies.

The first pitch will be thrown out by Damir Hamlin, Buffalo Bills Safety and McKees Rocks native, Damar Hamlin’s little brother.

Tri-State owner Ed Meyer said that he wants to “show that McKees Rocks is important.”

Meyer’s company will be giving out 40 tickets to Sto-Rox students who will get early access to the game and experience a Pirate’s batting practice. After, those students will get to talk to a panel of alumni from the Pittsburgh Pirates, Penguins and Steelers.

McKees Rocks native and Tri-State employee, Alexis Brinza, has been working with the Pirates to make this all happen. Ms. Brinza said it is “very rewarding” and that “a lot of the stuff that the kids go through now, I went through…and I’m fortunate enough to be in a position where I can give back and support other people in the community.”

In 2010, Meyer, a Beechview native with big dreams opened Tri-State Office Furniture in the McKees Rock Bottoms.

The company has seen great success over the years as well as at its West Virginia and Buffalo, New York locations. As mentioned, Meyer had big dreams, and owning a successful company was just the start.

Meyer has been a member of the McKees Rocks community for 25 years and considers it his home.

“As my company had been getting bigger I had more dollars to use for giving back,” Meyers said.

McKees Rocks Council President, Archie Brinza, said Meyer and Tri-State are a “God send” to the community.

Meyer and the employees of his company have organized clean-ups for the area as well as providing products and donations to Marlene Banks’ “Welcome to the Table Project” where students, families, and anyone who needs a bite or someone to visit with can come to the Sto-Rox High School every Wednesday and be provided a home cooked meal.

Along with the services to the community as a whole, Meyer has a focus on the youth of McKees Rocks and “creating a different environment for the kids.”

In 2019, Meyer began providing college scholarships to three graduating seniors of Sto-Rox High School. Students fill out an application, submit an essay and are picked by staff to be awarded the “Edward F. Meyer III Scholarship” named after Meyer’s grandfather, who was a soldier during World War II.

Meyer, an advocate for youth sports, donated the uniforms for the Sto-Rox High School football team, so all students could participate and not worry about the cost. He has big hopes for the future of the community and is always “planning on doing more.”
