Unpredictable storms the last two weeks of May didn’t keep a group of local businesses and a national industry association from coming to the aid of a Dallas-based nonprofit organization that has been helping children and their families since 1920. King of Texas Roofing Company, L.P., Grand Prairie; H&E Equipment, Dallas; Rmax, Dallas; Jim Whitten Roof Consultants, Austin; and the National Roofing Contractors Association along with other industry partners donated labor, materials, expertise and additional necessities to repair the roof system at Momentous Institute, owned and operated by the Salesmanship Club of Dallas.
The project, which replaced 26,000 square feet of the nearly 20-year-old roof on the campus at 106. E 10th Street, was completed in recognition of National Roofing Week, July 5-11to enable Momentous Institute to prioritize its funding for operations instead of capital investments.
“As professional roofing contractors, it’s our duty to give back to the communities we work and live in by serving those in need,” said Nelson Braddy, President of King of Texas Roofing. “National Roofing Week is important for recognizing the importance of every roof system, the value of the professional roofing contractor, and also for encouraging roofing companies to give back to those who provide services to our communities.”
“This new roof is a huge undertaking for NRCA, King of Texas, and the many sponsors who helped make it a reality,” said Michelle Kinder, Executive Director of Momentous Institute. “We are grateful to be part of National Roofing Week. The new roof will enable us to redirect funds to invest in those we serve.”
Momentous Institute helps build and repair social emotional health for more than 6,000 children and family members every year through educational and therapeutic programs. In addition to these programs, Salesmanship Club also manages and operates the AT&T Byron Nelson, a premier PGA TOUR event that has raised more than $137 million for Momentous Institute since 1968.
NRCA’s National Roofing Week will take place July 5-11 to increase recognition of the significance of roofs to every home and business in the U.S.; promote the good deeds of the roofing industry; and emphasize the value of professional roofing contractors.
