Celebrating kindness

For the fourth year, NRCA and CNA, Chicago, have partnered to co-sponsor the 2016 CNA/NRCA Community Involvement Award, which celebrates good deeds committed by NRCA members. If you are an NRCA contractor member, you are eligible to participate, and I urge you to apply.

Any charitable project, activity or donation completed between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31 can be submitted for consideration in the awards program. The deadline for submissions is Dec. 31.

The winning charity will receive $5,000. Two honorable mentions will each receive $1,000. Projects, activities or donations do not have to involve roofing work.

For example, Delta Exteriors, St. Louis, won the 2015 CNA/NRCA Community Involvement Award for working closely with Stray Rescue of St. Louis to help save abandoned and neglected animals. The company gave a monetary donation and also created a marketing campaign that noted for every roof completed, Delta Exteriors would pay for the adoption process of an animal.
