As Part of United Way Day of Caring, R.H. Marcon Inc. Replaces Roof System on Group Home for Disabled Individuals

MarconFounded in 1972, Strawberry Fields, State College, Pa., provides comprehensive services and support that enhances the lives of individuals with developmental delays, intellectual disabilities and mental illness, and their families.

In August 2016, NRCA member R.H. Marcon Inc., State College, was approached by the Centre County United Way to assist the Strawberry Fields group home facility as part of the 2016 United Way Day of Caring, one of the largest annual volunteer events in the area, that took place Oct. 6.

Strawberry Fields’ 2,500-square-foot three-tab shingle roof system was extremely old and in immediate need of replacement.

R.H. Marcon agreed to donate free labor to replace the roof system with shingles and caps donated by IKO Roofing Products.

On the United Way Day of Caring, a crew of six R. H. Marcon workers tore off the existing shingles and installed the new shingles on the roof system. The crew completed the majority of the project in one day. However, a few workers returned for half of the day Oct. 7 to complete the project. The cost of the new roof system including labor and materials, was estimated to be $8,500.

“R.H. Marcon was excited and proud to have helped Strawberry Fields and the Centre County United Way by donating labor and helping arrange for the donation of material so Strawberry Fields could receive a new roof system,” says Paul Tomczuk, president of R.H. Marcon.

“As a nonprofit, because of our dedication to our consumers and staff, the facilities don’t receive the much-needed care and maintenance of bigger ticket items like roofs,” says Cynthia Pasquineli, CEO of Strawberry Fields. “Our facility is now a safer, warmer and drier home for our consumers.”
