On December 6, 2014 skilled volunteers from Best Roofing stripped and replaced Army veteran, Angel Lunkin's roof.
Her roof had been actively leaking for a number of years, leaving dark spots on the ceilings in several rooms and generally damp conditions inside the home. After several frustrating and unsuccessful attempts to repair the leaks, Angel reached out to Rebuilding Together.
Angel is a 5 year Army veteran who graduated from South Broward High School. She has two children and currently works for the City of Dania Beach. She served as an E4, in the 92 Alpha as an Automated Logistics specialist deployed in Germany. Ms. Lunkins has received many decorations for her service she is a recipient of the good conduct medal, national defense medal, Army service ribbon, overseas service ribbon and Global war on Terrorism Service medal. Ms. Lunkins was honorably discharged from active service in 2004.
When Best Roofing visited the home, they found plenty of evidence that Angel has been extremely proactive with her home, but that her income has kept her in a cycle of “putting band-aids” on the roof because she could never afford to replace it in its entirety. With the support of Best Roofing, Bradco/ABC Supply, JGA Beacon, and Gulf Eagle, skilled volunteers from Best Roofing has made Angel’s home dry and safe for many years to come.
"Best Roofing and its suppliers and distributors are proud to help Rebuilding Together Broward in its volunteer efforts to rebuild our local communities,” stated Kathleen Lowe, Vice President of Marketing & Business Development. "At Best Roofing, we know the importance of home and believe it is critical to enhance home safety within the communities in which we live and work. Through volunteering our time and support, we hope to inspire others to get involved in their communities,” she concluded.
“The partnership that Rebuilding Together Broward has with Best Roofing is truly transformational,” states Sandra Sandra Veszi Einhorn, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together Broward. “There is no greater gift that we can give to a homeowner than that of a safe and dry roof. We are so thankful that Gregg Wallick, CEO & President of Best Roofing promotes a culture of giving back and that our homeowners can benefit from that generosity,” she concluded.
