Firestone and sales rep make donation

Carmel, Ind.-based Firestone Building Products Co. and Wilmington, Mass.-based Admiral Building Products Inc., a regional sales representative for Firestone Building Products, joined to donate $10,000 to the Foundation Friends Program of the North/East Roofing Educational Foundation (NEREF) Inc.

The donation is part of a commitment the companies made in 2003 to contribute $50,000 during a five-year period. As a result of the donations, NEREF established a Platinum Scholarship for vocational school and college students. NEREF will award five $1,500 scholarships this year.
