Reliant Roofing, Inc was recently recognized in the Professional Roofing Magazine for our Every Shingle Heart Initiative. We are so honored to be featured in this month’s issue of the magazine.Thank you National Roofing Contractors Association for sharing our heart for our community with the rest of the nation. Below is a snippet of the article.
“‘The colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky, are also on the faces of people going by. I see friends shaking hands, saying, ‘How do you do?’ … And I think to myself: What a wonderful world.” These lyrics from the ballad “What a Wonderful World” were written by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss in 1967 during the Vietnam War. The song was inspired by and written for Louis Armstrong for his ability to bring people together. Although the song only reached No. 116 in the U.S., according to Billboard magazine, it has become a beloved standard in pop music. In 1999, the song was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and continues to be used in popular culture to convey a connection between people.
During 2017, people living in the U.S. conveyed their strong connections to others by helping charities in record numbers. According to Giving USA,™ an organization that has provided comprehensive charitable giving data for more than 60 years, charitable donations increased to 5.2 percent (3 percent adjusted for inflation) in 2017, crossing the $400 billion mark for the first time.
In the roofing world, acts of benevolence also abound. From rebuilding a local barn to hosting job fairs for veterans nationwide, NRCA members are generous supporters of their communities.
A good roof protects our home, keeps us dry and shelters us from storms. It’s something that some of us take for granted but for many people in our community, the effects of Hurricane Matthew are still being felt. For some of these families, the cost of replacing a damaged roof is simply beyond their reach. We knew there was an opportunity to help and that’s why Reliant Roofing created our Every Shingle Heart Initiative.
We recognize Reliant Roofing, in this issue of Professional Roofing Magazine, for their charitable program, Ever Shingle Heart. Their goal was simple; to provide one deserving family in Jacksonville with a new roof. They were extremely excited for their first annual Every Shingle Heart Initiative and hoped that it would encourage other businesses to get involved. As the nominations started coming in, it became clear that helping just one family would not be enough. Three finalists were selected whose stories truly touched their hearts.”
Thank you again, to all of those who have stood by us on our journey. We appreciate your love and support throughout our success and growth. We wouldn’t be where we are at today if we didn’t have you all to thank!
