Giving back is its own reward, but sometimes it generates unexpected benefits. The Boulder City Review dishes out kudos to the companies and organizations, including Cooper Roofing & Solar, that participated in the reroofing and other renovations of several homes at St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in Boulder City.
A charitable donation by multiple groups has given St. Jude’s Ranch for Children a much-needed upgrade.
Five companies HomeAid of Southern Nevada, Cooper Roofing and Solar, Warmington Residential, Boral Roofing and Vision Paint and Drywall donated money, people and resources to help fix the roofs of three of St. Jude’s cottage homes.
The roofing issues plaguing the buildings caused additional problems, resulting in the need for repairs to drywall and paint. With new roofs installed, St. Jude’s was able to address these and make the buildings safer for the children.
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children Grants Manager Jed Blake said the repairs on the roofs were desperately needed. Over the years, the roofs on the buildings weathered to a point of tiles becoming brittle and broken and the damage was causing water to seep through the homes and causing a health hazard for the children, Blake said.
The roofing project was needed for the St. George, St. Francis and St. Louis cottages.
Blake said the children now have a safer living environment thanks to the volunteers.
The new roofs will guarantee a safe and dry living environment for the children for years to come, he said.
In addition to reroofing the buildings, replacing the old clay tile with new concrete tile donated by Boral Roofing, Cooper Roofing & Solar installed new gutters where they were necessary to protect the buildings.
We’re proud to be a part of this project and honored to participate with a great group of construction companies and organizations who put all they could into making this a success for HomeAid Southern Nevada, St. Jude’s and the children they serve.
