Each year, the She Builds program from the Rebuilding Together organization gives back to women in communities across the country by making sure they are in safe spaces and homes. Their upcoming reroofing project will be for Merlita from Tacoma, Washington and they are looking for volunteers! Registration is open for this year’s She Builds reroofing project until March 31. The event itself will take place April 30, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Merlita is a 65-year-old grandmother who lives and works in Tacoma. She has lived in her home for 27 years with her daughter Stephanie. Her daughter’s children, ages 13, 9 and 5, live there as well. When Merlita was in need of a new roof, she reached out to Rebuilding Together South Sound for assistance and now she is getting a complete reroof, free-of charge. PABCO Roofing Products and Beacon Building Products have donated all the materials needed for the project.
The Seattle chapter of National Women in Roofing will be helping with the project and is in need of volunteer services. They are planning a multi-layer tear off and will be installing a PABCO roof system. They already have a labor tear and install team, but they are looking for volunteers to help with yard cleaning, mowing and gardening.
If you can’t make it to the She Builds event but would still like to donate, Director of Operations and Administration of NWIR, Brittany Wimbish says you can contact her to sponsor the event.
