C&L Ward hosts contest to gift a roof to a homeowner in need

Sixth Annual “Shingles for Shelter” program gets underway

DAVISON — In an effort to give back to the community, C&L Ward will once again host its roof giveaway program called Shingles for Shelter, in which they will gift an installed asphalt roof to a homeowner who has fallen on hard times and cannot afford to replace a failing roof.

ABC Supply Co. Inc. has partnered with them and will donate all the shingles for the new roof.

C&L Ward has a form on the page within their website, goclward.com/shelter, where the homeowner can be nominated or apply themselves.

The application period runs through Dec. 5. Entrants are asked to submit an online nomination form which includes a written statement on why the homeowner should be awarded the roof and photos of the current roof on the home.

The winner will be selected on current roof condition, circumstance, merit of the nomination and presentation quality. Nominees must be 21 years of age, the homeowner and a resident in the C&L Ward service area.

The difficult tasking of judging will be performed by a panel of C&L Ward employees, the winner will be announced on Dec. 20 and the brand-new roof will be installed Spring of 2022.

“We are thrilled to be paying it forward within our community for the sixth time with our Shingles for Shelter program. This is one of our favorite annual happenings and we feel very fortunate to be in a position to provide a new roof for a family in need. With both the winter and holiday season near, we welcome the opportunity to provide the basic necessity of a leak-free roof to a deserving family this time of the year,” said Patrick Ward, President of C&L Ward. “It was disheartening when the pandemic prevented this event last year and we’re thrilled to be back at it! We want to thank ABC Supply Co., Inc. and GFL Environmental for partnering with us on this program once again. Their support is greatly appreciated.”
