In September we kicked off the installations for our 4th annual Covers 4 Others program. We’ve awarded over 50 property owners across America with a 100% free roof. Our first installation this year was Arkansas City, KS nonprofit, First Things First, Inc. This organization serves as a safe community space to help improve the lives of individuals and families recovering from drug use.
Serving Communities We Live and Work In
Wichita-native Project Consultant Brandon Witten oversaw the build, which turned out to be a full circle moment for him.
“This is the house that [another rep] and I felted to stop the leak.”
After hearing that a new roof was out of budget for the organization, Brandon told them about the Covers 4 Others program. On Patriot Day we announced that First Things First, Inc. was selected as one of the winners.
It’s A Celebration
Shingle manufacturer IKO, roofing supply company SRS Distribution and roofing underlayment manufacturer MaxFelt sponsored the project’s materials. The roof, complete with IKO Cambridge shingles in Dual Grey, will be protected for years to come under our Aspen Ironclad Lifetime Warranty.
To celebrate the joyous occasion, we provided First Things First, community members and our roofing crew members with a special lunch onsite while the new roof was being installed.
Blueprint for a Better Life
“[We received] a lot of support. We are still having people congratulate us on the roof – people we didn’t even know were aware of what Covers 4 Others has done for us,” said Schnackenberg.
“A weight [has been] lifted. We are free to move forward with other maintenance issues. This organization will continue to serve the community for many years to come as a result of Covers 4 Others.”
