“No Roof Left Behind, Year 2”

 “No Roof Left Behind, Year 2”


No Roof Left Behind is the chance for Bakeris Roofing to give back to the community that we serve. We’re able to donate a roof to someone in need who couldn’t afford it otherwise. Whether it’s because of a medical bill that depleted their savings, a lost job in the family, or another reason, this is the chance for them to get a brand new roof installed.


Anyone can be nominated—the entire process is online. If you would like to nominate someone, visit the No Roof Left Behind page and follow the simple steps. You’ll have to write a bit about why you think this person should get a new roof. There are also some basic criteria that the person being nominated needs to meet. For example, nominees must be current on their house payment and they have to live in the Polk County area.


Nominations are from May 1 through June 19. Nominations will then be reviewed from June 20 through July 6. After that, people will be able to vote for the final nominations on July 7 through July 21. Finally, the winner will be revealed on August 1. We’ve shortened up the timeline this year—in total, we’ve taken three months out of the process.


If anyone wants to help us with this event, we have a sponsorship available. You can contact us via email or by phone at (515) 967-8199 to learn more. You might also want to be there on the day we celebrate with the homeowner after the roof is installed. You are welcome to help by bringing a homemade pie (one of my favorites). And remember, there are only two kinds of pie that I like: hot or cold.


Last year, we had a chef that owned a catering business who decided to help us out. He donated and prepared all the food for the celebration. We also had a realtor who gave a thoughtful financial donation. She said that she wanted to take part in helping such a great cause. We had a chiropractor who sponsored the event as well. He gave a full exam, x-rays and some adjustments. If you are a sponsor, we’ll be sure to put your company’s logo up on display. (If you’re an individual, we’ll use your name instead.)


We’ve realized that there is no shortage of people eager to help out when the opportunity arises. They are very enthusiastic about helping a good cause that goes to the right people, and our No Roof Left Behind program makes it easy for everyone. (Whoa, that seems to be a common theme for us at Bakeris Roofing.)


And remember, like last year, we bring in past clients and other like-minded business people throughout our community to form a council that helps narrow down the nominees to four or five candidates. After that, the public gets to vote online for who they think is the best candidate for the new roof. It’s a great way for us to give back to the community in which we live, go to school, and go to church.
