Acts of kindness

Many communities get by with a little help from NRCA friends

"Remember there is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end."
—Scott Adams, "Dilbert" comic strip creator

The opportunity to help others is something NRCA members rarely dismiss. The help provided often can involve difficult and labor-intensive tasks, but NRCA members are no strangers to a challenge. Many NRCA members believe it is a call of duty to help their communities and share their roofing knowledge with social and professional networks. If you ask an NRCA roofing professional what he or she did during the past year to make life better for someone, chances are you will hear not just one or two examples but many.

From donating labor, materials and money to installing roof systems and hosting fundraisers, NRCA members are among the most caring individuals in the industry. They perform acts of kindness simply to help other people, not for recognition.

Every August, Professional Roofing attempts to collect some of these stories of generosity and share them. Following is a glimpse at the acts of kindness NRCA members have performed during the past year to help their communities.
