The 2019 International Roofing Expo® Contributes to Nashville with 10th Annual Community Service Day
February 9, 2019
Volunteers and sponsors will work together to help rebuild the homes of families that are elderly.
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 10th Annual 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 10th year 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 nonprofit, 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.
