Roofing professionals participating in the 2019 International Roofing Expo (IRE) are given the opportunity to give back to the Nashville community by participating in Community Service Day, the show’s home repair and revitalization project.
The 10thAnnual Community Service Day will take place on Sunday, February 10, from 7:30 am – 3:00 pm. Volunteers and sponsors will work together to help rebuild the homes of families that are elderly, disabled or financially unable to support the renovation. This year the group will also perform work on a local Boys and Girls Club.
“We are going into our 10thyear of the Community Service Day and I can definitely say that this is my favorite part of my job. I love giving back to others and it’s clear that the Roofing Industry feels the same way. I am proud to be part of this industry. Our homeowners are always so grateful for the assistance they receive. We are very thankful for our supporters who make this day possible” said Brandi McElhaney, Senior Conference Manager.
Skilled and unskilled volunteers are needed to help with the renovations. Skilled volunteers, made up of construction professionals, perform a variety of construction disciplines including roofing, interior/exterior painting, flooring, and minor carpentry. Unskilled volunteers help with set up, cleanup, and other miscellaneous projects. The International Roofing Expo is partnering with Rebuilding Together Nashville, a non-profit, volunteer-based program that repairs and rehabilitates homes and non-profit community facilities.
Community Service Day is made possible by the support of our sponsors. Sika Sarnafil has been the primary sponsor for ten years.
Additional sponsors include:
- Safety Equipment: Carlisle Construction Materials
- Breakfast: ICP Building Solutions Group
- Lunch: OMG Roofing Products
- Shuttle: Damato Enterprises
- Roofing Labor and Material: Don Kennedy Roofing Co.
- Tool Sponsor: Centimark
Participants can register for this event at the same time they register to attend the show. There is a $25 fee that includes transportation, beverages and snacks. Tax-deductible monetary donations can also be made during registration.
The 2019 International Roofing Expo will be held February 11-13, at the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee USA, offering roofing contractors of all sizes and specialties a comprehensive preview of the entire roofing construction and maintenance industry.
