“Building it Forward” campaign winner received $15,000 worth of home improvements
We gave back to our local community in a big way – by giving one lucky homeowner-in-need a brand-new free roof. We ran our “Building It Forward” campaign over the summer and received more than 60 nominations of residents who were in need of a new roof. The winner, 70-year-old Judith Valdez of Littleton, was not only the grateful recipient of a brand-new roof, she was also treated to a fresh coat of paint for the exterior of her home by Wright Choice Painting – a prize worth more than $15,000!
For Judith – who is retired and living on a fixed income, wheelchair-bound, and supporting her 91-year-old mother who lives with her – this gift meant the world. Her roof was damaged after a severe hailstorm, but since her roof was wood shake singles, the repair was no longer an option due to new coding laws. Her insurance company categorized the damage as wear and tear so the cost to replace the roof was just too much for Judith. Without the means to repair her home, Judith submitted her story to our “Building It Forward” campaign in the hopes of living in a safe and stable home with a new roof.
Judith’s submission really spoke to all of us. We started the “Building It Forward” campaign for homeowners like Judith, people who needed just a bit of help to ensure that their home was dry and most importantly, secure. We are a neighborhood business, and we knew we needed to give back to the community that we all live and work in. This campaign was the perfect way to show our appreciation and use our services to help one of our neighbors in a big way.
We are accepting nominations for our next “Building It Forward” campaign, as we realize there are many deserving homeowners whose life could be changed by receiving a new roof.
