Rebuilding Together Atlanta—Rebuilding Together Atlanta is part of a national network of affiliates providing home repair and modification services to homeowners who are seniors, veterans and have disabilities so they can have healthy and safe housing. Mike Orum, executive director with Rebuilding Together Atlanta, contacted Bennett Judson about a recent project in Atlanta. The project involved the home of Ms. Elaine Tyler, a retired senior veteran who lives on a fixed income, is facing medical issues and had a leaky roof, which caused major damage throughout her home. Her story was featured on the local CBS channel in Atlanta’s “Fighting for our Veterans” segment. CLICK HERE to watch her story.

Unfortunately, because of geographic restrictions, Ms. Tyler did not qualify for Rebuilding Together’s roof replacement program through the city of Atlanta. So, they reached out to the Roofing Alliance to see whether any of our members might be willing to get involved with this project by offering their services as donations or providing discounts on labor and/or materials.

Thanks to Roofing Alliance members Chad Collins with Bone Dry Roofing Co., Bogart, Ga., and Ken Farrish, Atlas Roofing Corp., Atlanta, Ms. Tyler has a new roof! During this time of COVID-19, we are all trying to make a difference. This project provided an opportunity to make a difference and keep Ms. Tyler safe.

Fit Body, Fit Mind Challenge—A passion for fostering a mentally and physically healthy team and community led Dean Jagusch at Wagner Roofing Co., Hyattsville, Md., to spearhead employee and local outreach initiatives, as well as sponsor multiple cycling teams and events throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

Last fall, Wagner Roofing committed to support acclaimed sports journalist Rupert Guinness and his efforts to raise awareness for mental health in the Race Across America—the ultimate 3,000-mile test of mental and physical endurance! Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, RAAM was cancelled. But with the cancellation, Guinness and his team saw the opportunity to leverage their platform to resurrect the 2020 iteration as the newly reincarnated Virtual Race Across America.

Wagner Roofing’s challenge was to join them in this virtual journey across America … for an hour a day. They challenged employees, customers, industry partners, friends and families to join them and Rupert Guinness for “the60“—60 minutes of exercise each day of the 12-day VRAAM events from June 16-28.
