Tri-State adopts Ronald McDonald House roofs
PARKERSBURG — Tri-State/Service Roofing & Sheet Metal Group has adopted 11 Ronald McDonald House roofs, providing inspections, repairs, and maintenance services to the organization.
The project is part of the Roofing Alliance, a National Roofing Contractors Association foundation, which announced the completion this summer of its goal to find roofing contractors to adopt the roofs of 165 freestanding Ronald McDonald Houses across the United States.
Those adopted by Tri-State are the Ronald McDonald House Charities of North Central Florida, Gainesville, Fla., Ronald McDonald House of Greenville, N.C., Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill, N.C., Ronald McDonald House of Durham, N.C., Ronald McDonald House of Winston-Salem, N.C., Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte, N.C., Ronald McDonald House of Lexington, Ky., Ronald McDonald House of Charleston, W.Va., Ronald McDonald House of Huntington, W.Va., Ronald McDonald House of Richmond, Va., and Ronald McDonald House of Charlottesville, Va.
Ronald McDonald Houses provide meals and the support and resources families need when their child is hospitalized or being treated at a hospital far from home. The House program allows families to focus solely on their child’s health and treatment, while Ronald McDonald House Charities® takes care of the family.
“We’re excited to have the Tri-State/Service Group as part of the partnership between Ronald McDonald House Charities and the Roofing Industry Alliance for Progress,” said Sheila Musolino, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities. “Because the Tri-State/Service Group has committed to help maintain the roof of Ronald McDonald House Charities, the staff and volunteers at the house can be comforted to know they are working with a reputable contractor, allowing them to focus on what matters most – the children and families we serve.”
