22 Nov Universal Roof & Contracting – OBJ Top Philanthropic Company
Each year the Orlando Business Journal (OBJ) assembles from area businesses the companies that make a mark on their community through volunteer hours and financial support. Ranking in the top 50 among numerous Central Florida companies, OBJ recently announced that Universal Roof & Contracting made their Top Philanthropic List for our charitable contributions in 2015.
Family members and associates at Universal Roof have always had a heart for people and a desire to build up our community. As a growing company, in 2013 we established the “Community Works” division with hopes to see restoration, healing and progress come to the lives of the residents in our Florida community and beyond, reaching individuals and families through local, national and international organizations.
In 2015 our support included fundraisers and sponsorships with financial contributions for non-profits like Nathaniel’s Hope, Give Kids the World, and the American Medical Athletic Association. Associates volunteered to support causes at Freedom Ride and True Life Choice & Choices Women’s Clinic. Participating in area golf tournaments, our resident golf experts (and novices!) enjoyed playing to support organizations like The Russell Home, Northwest Christmas Child & New Hope Youth Camp.

Each year since its inception, Universal Contracting Community Works has found a “Neighbor in Need”, donating time and resources to individual families by providing them with much-needed home improvements and repairs. The 2015 Neighbor in Need was Sanford resident and disabled veteran, Edd Dunnam. He and his children were living in a home with multiple roof leaks and exterior damage. We replaced the entire roof, replaced the decking, upgraded the ventilation, and cleaned up the exterior. We still keep in touch with Edd, and he continues to express his gratitude for being the recipient of the Universal “Neighbor in Need” program. Read more about Edd.
As we continue to serve to help improve the lives and circumstances of those around us, Universal Roof & Contracting owners and associates are honored to be recognized by our peers at OBJ and those in our community.
