Jake’s Paws for A Cause Bus

HOPE South Florida is a non-profit organization that Best Roofing has partnered up with to help serve homeless and hurting individuals and families in the Fort Lauderdale area.

HOPE South Florida was launched in mid-2010 as eight of the largest churches in Fort Lauderdale joined in partnership with The Shepherd’s Way. The idea is to collectively work to “Build HOPE, Build Housing and Build Community” for a complete response to homelessness.

Best Roofing bought the bus they were using at the time, to later donate it back to HOPE South Florida. It is now shared with any other non-profit organization that needs help with transportation. We fixed the bus and maintain the care of it as well as wrapped it with Jake’s Paws for a Cause logo. The bus is used by HOPE on Monday, Thursday and Saturday mornings to transport homeless people from the Downtown Fort Lauderdale area to the different sites that serve a hot meal for them. The bus provides rides to about 200 people per week that would otherwise have no means to obtaining a daily meal.

This is one of the many ways that Best Roofing makes sure to give back to the community. It keeps us humble and reminds us of how blessed we are to be able to help others in need.
