Charity Reroof Project in Fort Worth, Texas
by Alex Helton, associate manager, marketing communications, Polyglass U.S.A., Inc.
Polyglass® U.S.A., Inc., a manufacturer of roofing and waterproofing systems, recently had the opportunity to team up with Zenith Roofing Services, LLC, Fort Worth, Texas, to provide a much-needed update to the roofing system for Ronald McDonald House of Fort Worth (RMHFW). Zenith Roofing provided the labor and expertise to complete a full reroofing of the facility, and Polyglass donated the roofing products needed to complete the project.
The RMHFW project is the latest charity project in an ongoing partnership between Zenith Roofing and Polyglass. The two companies have a mutually beneficial business relationship, but they have also found a common kinship in giving back, which is a key core value of both companies. As a result, Polyglass and Zenith collaborate regularly on numerous projects that give back to the community. Zenith has supported RMHFW for many years. As Zenith’s founder Allan Rodger explained, “As long as we’re in business, Zenith will do the Christmas decorations for RMHFW and the families they support.”
When Zenith approached Polyglass to help with this project, it presented a unique opportunity for both companies to combine forces to help an organization dedicated to supporting other families. “Zenith has always supported Polyglass products for their tried-and-true manufacturing, as well as their quality of products and people,” said Blaine Sibby, Zenith’s director of business development.
The Polyglass team was thrilled to contribute, and it carried a special sense of meaning for Chris Martinez and Dylan Homa, two Polyglass representatives who participated in the RMHFW project onsite. “Our company talks a lot about family and family values,” said Martinez. “Giving back has always been a part of our organization, and for us to be here to be able to give back to something in our own community, that makes it special for us.
“We’d like to thank Zenith for allowing us to be part of this,” Martinez continued. “We’d also like to thank RMHFW for doing what they do, with or without us, because they’re going to be here every day no matter what.”
