The Roofing Alliance, the foundation of the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA), proudly celebrates roofing industry partners who have donated their time and expertise to work with Ronald McDonald House programs across the United States. The foundation will be collecting stories of giving in recognition of the 165 roofs that have been adopted through the partnership between the Roofing Alliance and Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC).
In 2018, former Roofing Alliance vice president, Rod Petrick, issued a challenge to all Roofing Alliance and NRCA members to adopt the remaining 53 roofs of the 165 stand-alone RMHC programs throughout the United States. The initiative to adopt all 165 RMHC roofs started in April 2017 and the goal was reached in June 2019. Now, the Roofing Alliance will once again celebrate that accomplishment by gathering stories from roofing industry partners to share through traditional and social media. These stories will add to the rich history of this initiative of how the Roofing Alliance began working with RMHC by supporting their efforts to help families with critically ill children stay together and near the hospitals providing them medical care. The roofing industry saw the unique opportunity to support Ronald McDonald House programs which provide private sleeping rooms, meals, and opportunities for families to interact with one another as they go through difficult times.
Through sponsorship funds and the adoption of the roofs of the 165 stand-alone Ronald McDonald House programs in the United States, the Roofing Alliance has brought together roofing professionals and companies including contractors, manufacturers, distributors, media, and service providers who donate their time and talents to provide regular roof system inspections, maintenance, repairs, and/or replacements while also volunteering and donating financially.
At 172 members strong, the Roofing Alliance is a dedicated forum of roofing contractors, manufacturers, distributors, service providers, and industry professionals who promote and fund the advancement of roofing through research, education, technology, and philanthropic initiatives to help the roofing industry and their greater communities.
