For the 9th year, DryHome Roofing and Siding, a Sterling, VA based roofing company, continues its tradition of helping the community by giving a free roof away this holiday season to a Northern Virginia individual, family or nonprofit in need.
DryHome Roofing and Siding has been serving Northern Virginia for more than 20 years and is committed to making a difference in the community. Everyday, DryHome’s work ensures that families and organizations have safe, high-quality roofs. The “Free Roof for the Holidays” program enables DryHome to thank its customers and the community by helping those less fortunate have a safe roof over their heads too.
It is that time of year again when we ask our friends, customers and peers for nominations for our annual “FREE ROOF FOR THE HOLIDAYS”.
In the past:
- Our first roof, in 2003, went to the Falls Church Cub Scout house located in the City of Falls Church.
- In 2004 we installed a new roof for The Good Shepherd Alliance. They own and run a transitional home and shelter for women and children at Hebron, which can be found right outside the town of Lucketts.
- In 2005 the free roof was awarded to Gabriel Homes of Reston. They are a private non-profit organization that provides care to adults with developmental disabilities and assists them with everyday life activities.
- In 2006, Mrs. Caylor of Leesburg received the free roof for the year, for being a great patron in the community and donating her time to care for local children at the Community Church nursery.
- Mr. Bernie Cline, an 86 year old resident of Alexandria was 2007’s roof recipient. Bernie was referred by Roger Healy, the Project Coordinator of RPJ Housing. RPJ Housing is an affiliate for Rebuilding Together; formerly known as Christmas in April.
- In 2008, Reston Interfaith received our 6th free roof. They are a nonprofit organization with 38 years of experience serving Reston, Herndon and northwestern Fairfax County. They promote self-sufficiency through support and advocacy for those in need of food, shelter, affordable housing, quality childcare, and other services.
- In 2009, and for the second time, The Good Shepherd Alliance was the recipient. The roof was for the Hebron Women and Children’s Shelter which houses 22 people at any given time. The facility named after a place in the Bible meaning “place of refuge.” Residents enter into their Six Steps to Self-Sufficiency program upon entering the shelter. This program is an intensive case management program geared to helping families in crisis get back to self-sufficiency. Guests may stay up to 89-days in the emergency shelters. Most are able to progress through the program in this time frame.
- Last year, 87 year-old Hubert Laconia, a World War II vet and grandfather of four from Sterling, VA was the recipient of a new roof.
