Antis Roofing Recognized for Giving Back to Families & Frontline Heroes

Antis Roofing announced it has won two out of the five awards at OneOC’s 2020 Community Cup. 37 teams from 30 Orange County companies and nonprofits participated in the second annual Community Cup Charity Challenge. The teams consisted of 227 employee volunteers who contributed nearly 2,500 volunteer hours to their respective cause, in addition to cash and in-kind donations. Antis Roofing built two teams each taking home an award: Best Overall Impact Project with CA Love Drop, which supports and fuels healthcare workers and first responders by providing meals, beverages, treats, and supplies, and Best Hands-On Project with Second Harvest Food Bank, feeding the hungry and engaging the community in the fight against hunger.

“We’ve provided the essential service of keeping families safe and dry for over 30 years, and this year our purpose was clear in that our role must expand to support essential workers who are keeping us safe during these unprecedented times,” said Charles Antis, Founder and CEO of Antis Roofing. “We’re innovating in the moment to be able to give back where it’s needed most as we’ve seen firsthand how simple acts of kindness can have rippling effects throughout our communities,” Charles continued as he recalled a recent memory when his team delivered lunch to a local police station where a sergeant shared that it was the first act of kindness they’d received in months.

Antis Roofing has put charitable work at the forefront of everything it’s done for over 30 years, which has included ongoing partnerships with many for-cause organizations including Ronald McDonald House Orange County and Habitat for Humanity of Orange County. Serving communities is a top guiding principle at Antis as it keeps employees motivated and engaged knowing they are truly making a difference in the lives of others. These values are embedded in Antis Roofing’s company culture along with the responsibility to use their platform for good and making charitable giving an ongoing commitment.

“It’s our favorite time of year… our second Community Cup, where five winning teams are awarded $1,000 to gift to their nonprofit partner, along with the prestigious title of winner,” said Carolyn Spivak, OneOC’s Events Manager. “We are thrilled to see Antis being recognized in two of our five award categories! Their projects directly respond to the needs of those personally impacted by the pandemic, and their unwavering dedication to community service is commendable… congratulations, Antis!”

OneOC’s Community Cup is an impactful community service competition which directs much needed resources to Orange County nonprofits. Due to COVID, local businesses were encouraged to think outside of the box to support their communities and engage their employees in volunteerism. Each company partnered with a charity on a project and then a panel of judges decided the winners based on overall impact in the community, monetary and in-kind donations, volunteer hours, social media promotion, and more. 

Antis added, “Someday I’ll be able to reflect back on this year as one of the most fulfilling and beautiful times in my life, as our company ignited passion in others to do good during an incredible time of need. We’re grateful to OneOC for the recognition of our charitable work, and the entire Antis team feels energized to continue our giving journey as it’s clear there is much more to be done… and we are up for the challenge!”
