Members of the United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local No. 2 Apprenticeship Program recently donated their time and expertise to repair the roof at the Good Samaritan House, located at 1825 Delmar, Granite City, IL. In addition, Roofers Mart, located in St. Louis County, MO, donated all of the materials to complete the job.
“It was very rewarding to complete the job,” notes Dan Knight, Apprentice Coordinator for Local No. 2. “We repaired all of the active leaks and did what we could to prolong the life of the existing roof.”
The Good Samaritan House provides safe, temporary housing, food and resources to women and children in need. The building is more than 50 years old and the roof had significant leaks.
“We appreciate their help,” adds Dave Jenkins, a member of the Board of Directors with Good Samaritan House. “They did an excellent job.”
The United Union of Roofers, Waterproofers and Allied Workers Local No. 2 office is located at 2920 Locust St. in St. Louis.
