Despite gloomy and rainy weather, dozens of volunteers from the roofing industry arrived a day before the 2024 International Roofing Expo kicked off to take part in the 15th annual IRE Community Service Day

Participants boarded buses shortly after daybreak, heading to Henderson, just southeast of the Vegas Strip. The agenda included a range of renovations to help low-income seniors who otherwise couldn’t afford much-needed improvements.

Sika Sarnafil, the main sponsor of the event, brought 11 volunteers and presented Rebuilding Together of Southern Nevada with a check for $15,000. 

“We’re very excited to act as the main sponsor again for the community service day at the IRE,” said Bill Bellico, Sika’s vice president of Marketing & Inside Sales. “This will be the 14th year doing so, and it has really become one of our favorite traditions … to work side-by-side with contractors and fellow suppliers to give back to the local community.”

Additional sponsors included GAF, which donated roofing materials for roof replacements; Carlisle, Centimark, OMG Roofing Products, ICP Building Solutions, and TORC Roofing Co.
