Alte Roofing has completed their sixth free roof installation as part of their participation in the No Roof Left Behind program. This year’s winner was Jody Gregory of Hillsborough, NJ, who after a month of voting by the public, received over one thousand total votes.
“I never even thought that I’d be one of the top people,” Gregory said. “I submitted my nomination in the middle of the night on a whim. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am.”
The public had a month to vote for their favorite finalist in this program, and Gregory used this to her advantage. She’s been a teacher in the same school district for many years, and she reached out to the parents of former students asking for their help in voting. But these aren’t the only people she reached out to; she talked to her doctors, friends, shared on various Facebook pages, and even made sure her kids were sharing her link to vote with their friends and their parents.
Alte’s Project Managers Logan Ellsworth and Tim Fedorka visited with the winner once the job was complete. “The roof is awesome,” she said. “You guys are great!”
Alte Roofing is grateful to the others in the community that have partnered with them to make the roof a reality. ABC Supply Co. of Randolph and GAF Materials Corp. headquartered in Parsippany supplied the roofing materials, LMR Disposal provided a dumpster on site for the old roof materials, Hollie Studios of Hackettstown donated all the lawn signs, and Mama’s Cafe Baci of Hackettstown is providing a free meal for the winning family.
