Armor Xteriors, a roofing firm based in Chattanooga, Tenn., announced a charitable initiative in collaboration with GAF through a grant that will allow Armor Xteriors to provide free roofs for two homes owned and maintained by the nonprofit Orange Grove Center in Chattanooga.

The Orange Grove Center is an organization dedicated to serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities; its mission is to empower people with disabilities to lead meaningful lives by providing a range of family support services, the company said in an October 18 news release.

Armor Xteriors said it has always been committed to positively impacting the community it serves and this initiative is “…a testament to that commitment,”  as the company joins with GAF to contribute to the well-being and safety of those in need.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with GAF and support the Orange Grove Center by providing two homes with new roofs," said Steve Pickett, principal of Armor Xteriors. "Ensuring a safe and secure living environment is vital, and a durable roof is a crucial part of that. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for the residents of Orange Grove Center and helping them thrive."

GAF, a leading roofing materials manufacturer, has a long record of giving back to communities across the nation. Its contribution to this initiative highlights the company’s dedication to “corporate social responsibility and supporting initiatives that make a lasting” difference.

"We are delighted to partner with Armor Xteriors on this important community project," said Ben Sarro, territory manager at GAF. "By providing free roofs to the Orange Grove Center homes, we aim to enhance the living conditions and overall safety of the residents. It aligns with our core values of giving back and supporting communities in need."
