RoofersCoffeeShop.com Sets Up Hurricane Relief Forum

RoofersCoffeeShop.com is providing contractors and those serving the roofing industry a place to connect with a Hurricane Relief Forum. There has been an outpouring of generosity in the roofing industry, but some contractors and industry professionals outside of the stricken areas do not know how to help. According to RoofersCoffeeShop.com, the forum is a place to communicate about what the needs are in the areas of the country that have been hit hard by hurricanes.

RoofersCoffeeShop.com is also offering a free classified ad to contractors in affected areas to help them find crews, materials or other assistance. To receive a promo code for help wanted, equipment needed or storm-related classifieds, please visit the Hurricane Relief Forum. “We want to help the men and women who are roofing first responders in these areas,” stated Vickie Sharples, a RoofersCoffeeShop.com partner. “The idea started with a conversation with one of our customers, Trent Cotney of Trent Cotney P.A. Construction Law Group. We were talking about what we all could do to help after the devastation caused by these hurricanes.”

“We figured that we could do what we do best –help the industry communicate with each other,” continued Sharples. “We created the Hurricane Relief Forum as a place for contractors and others to reach out to the roofing community with their needs or to offer help. We also are offering a free classified ad because it is something we can do. We believe in our contractors and how amazing they are during these times. They need the support of their industry.”

RoofersCoffeeShop.com has offered a forum for contractors and classified advertising online since 2002. According to the company, tens of thousands of contractors have become members of the free online community. For more information, visit the Hurricane Relief Forum at www.rooferscoffeeshop.com. It is free to sign up and participate.

TAMKO Makes Donation to Red Cross to Aid Those Affected by Hurricane Harvey

TAMKO Building Products Inc. has proudly donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to assist with their Hurricane Harvey disaster relief efforts in Houston and the surrounding area. TAMKO presented the funds at the Joplin, Mo., Red Cross office on Sept. 6.

“Thanks to generous partners like TAMKO, the American Red Cross is there, providing food, shelter and comfort to people affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Stacy Burks, Executive Director of the American Red Cross Southern Missouri.  “We have deployed over a dozen local [Joplin-area] volunteers.  They join more than 3,000 Red Cross disaster workers who will continue to support families as they begin to recover and rebuild.” 

In the past, TAMKO has donated to the Red Cross to assist with disaster recovery from tornadoes that ravaged areas where TAMKO operates, including a deadly EF-5 tornado in 2011 that struck the town of Joplin, where TAMKO is headquartered. 

TAMKO’s President and CEO David Humphreys said, “The devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey are heartbreaking. TAMKO and its employees have witnessed firsthand what the American Red Cross can do to help in these types of disaster situations. We make this donation in the spirit of kindness that Houston and its neighbors so desperately need now.”
