Following a devastating fire last winter, the Red Creek Wildlife Center is now protected from the elements thanks to a partnership between Bachman’s Roofing, Solar & Remodeling and roofing manufacturer GAF.
The roofing companies recently donated a new roof for Wildlife Center, located in Schuylkill Haven, Pa. The center experienced a fire in December, resulting in the loss of their clinic facility and several animal lives. The new roof is part of Red Creek’s plan to rebuild its clinic facility and expand its facilities to care for the large number of animals it receives each year.
“What an absolute pleasure it was to partner with GAF to help Red Creek Wildlife Center out with the rebuild after the destructive fire. To be just a small part of the valuable mission Red Creek pursues on a daily basis brought warmth to my heart,” said Greg McNulty, general manager at Bachman’s Roofing, Solar & Remodeling. “We here at Bachman’s do several charitable roofs every year, and we’re so glad to be able to do our part for our community.”
Bachman’s Roofing, Solar & Remodeling donated the installation labor and GAF, one of North America’s largest roofing manufacturers, donated the roofing materials, which were produced locally at GAF’s Myerstown facility. According to a release, this collaboration is part of GAF’s social impact initiative, GAF Community Matters, which is focused on making a positive difference as neighbors and partners in the community by leveraging roofing expertise, resources and products to help build resilient communities.
“Working at GAF, we have the ability through our Community Matters initiative to help support our local community. After the fire, we were able to reach out to Red Creek within days to offer support,” said Lisa Sensenig, materials manager at GAF Myerstown. “Peggy Hentz, the owner of Red Creek, has dedicated her life to saving our local wildlife, and it means everything to us to support that mission as well as give back to a local organization.”
The rebuilt clinic building and expanded facility is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Learn more about the center at www.redcreekwildlifecenter.com.
