A local Albuquerque nonprofit, Alta Mira Specialized Family Services receives a roof donation from RoofCARE when found in an unexpected situation during the COVID-19 Pandemic. Not only did the pandemic change their operations but it also put a stop to their capital outlay funds from the state. The funds were forecasted to specifically fix the roof on their Respite Home and the nonprofit was hopeful that these funds could be used to quickly address the roof damage and to end any further water damage.
Alta Mira Specialized Family Services says they had received a quote from another company in the past suggesting they needed a new roof. However, when RoofCARE assessed the roof they found the roof on the Respite Home was in an overall good condition but had open seams on two pipes that were causing roof leaks. RoofCARE explained that unfortunately, this is not uncommon feedback and finds that roofs are often replaced before their time. They believe in making roofs last and suggest people get another roof assessment before replacing their roof prematurely.
“We were so thankful when RoofCARE reached out about this generous donation but we were shocked when we heard we could fix our roof with just a few repairs,” said Alta Mira Specialized Family Services’ Marketing Director, Andrew Faber.
Each year RoofCARE selects a local non-profit organization in need of roof repairs and donates its services. RoofCARE is currently looking for a nonprofit in Northern New Mexico for a RoofAngel project and asks organizations interested to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 505-246-6960.
“We always look for ways to give back to our local communities and couldn’t think of a better way than by donating our services to a non-profit in need. Organizations like Alta Mira do so much for people, the last thing they should have to deal with is the stress of a problematic roof”, said Georgia Maese, RoofCARE Albuquerque Branch Manager.
