Roof Donation and The Joy of Giving

Roof DonationI love this time of year!  Thanksgiving is such a relaxing and peaceful holiday for me.  I don’t generally like to cook, but for some reason, spending all day in the kitchen on Thanksgiving is strangely fulfilling.  Maybe it’s because I don’t plan anything else all day, unlike a typical work day.

This year was especially enjoyable because my son and I needed to switch to a gluten free and dairy free diet last December.  I know!  What’s enjoyable about that?  Well, I surfed the web all morning for the best gluten free/dairy free Green Bean Casserole, my son’s favorite.  After several attempts at duplicating the French’s Fried Onions, I didn’t quite get them right, but have a great place to start next time.

Why is frying 3 batches of onions before I finally ran out of onions and had to settle on the third batch enjoyable?  The joy of Giving, that’s it.  Giving doesn’t always have to be a grand gesture or involve a large amount of money.  The simple things sometimes mean the most.

In the spirit of giving, I’m excited to announce that Kirkey Roofing is donating a roof to a needy family in our local area.  This economy has been challenging, but we’re so thankful for our clients who continue to refer us to their neighbors and friends.  We’ve averaged about 5 jobs from referrals per month which has definitely kept us going through this tough time.

Sarasota, FL was hit hard by the housing crisis and many families are struggling financially.  We feel that we need to give back and help a family with a roof donation.  A roof isn’t a luxury.  A roof is more than a roof, it is the backbone of your home.  A faulty roof can cause all kinds of problems in your home, see some of my other blog articles for more information.  Many families are struggling to pay their bills and a roof repair or re-roof is beyond reach.

I’ll be providing more information about our roof donation soon.  We’ve been teaming up with some local suppliers and manufacturer’s so that we can give a premium Kirkey Roof to the family in need.
