Young Contractors Council of Arizona Roofing Contractors Association Band Together to Replace Struggling Single Mom’s Roof

OCT - Caught - Young Contractors Council of ARCA Band Together to Replace Struggling Single Mom’s Roof
October 20, 2018 at 1:08 p.m.

The project was part of the 3TV/CBS’s Arizona Surprise Squad.

In 2015, Rachel was engaged to her fiancé, Logan, and pregnant with the couple’s second child. Life was going so well, and she was looking forward to getting married and raising their children. Then her world changed in an instant when Logan was struck by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle and did not survive.

Rachel’s mother Sandra told 3TV’s Olivia Fierro. "Her whole life changed in an instant. "She was expecting their second child when Logan passed. So, she went through the whole pregnancy alone. She's had some issues lately with her house that I wasn't really able to financially help her with so that is why I wrote in to the Surprise Squad."

This summer, powerful storms ripped portions of the roof off of her home, exposing the interior to water damage and leaving her stuck with expensive repair bills that were beyond her means.

When Eric Perry, COO of Azul Roofing Solutions heard Rachel’s story, he knew he wanted to help. He told Rachel when the surprise was revealed, "I'm with a group called the Young Professionals. We are with the Arizona Roofing Contractors Association. We heard your story. We read your nomination. And I reached out to the other young professionals in the roofing industry and collectively, between several roofing contractors, manufacturers and distributors, we have accumulated all the labor and materials necessary to completely replace your roof at no cost to you whatsoever."

Needless to say, Rachel was completely surprised and extremely thankful for the support. The group threw in an additional bonus by giving her the gift of covering two months of daycare costs. Watch the surprise unfold here.

Thank you to the following companies for helping with this surprise:

Buddy Stubbs Harley-Davidson, Azul Roofing Solutions, Lifetime Roof Systems, Tecta America, Star Roofing, EagleView Technologies, Tamko Building Products, Elite Roofing Supply, Chemlink, Kennedy Skylights, Lomanco Vents, Sierra Waste, Wrecorp, Carpets of Arizona, Sky Cam AZ and Eagle Roofing Products.
