At Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply, everything we do revolves around supporting the nonprofit community.
We are one of the largest contributors of Cornerstone Community Outreach (CCO). CCO offers shelter and services to homeless and low-income families and individuals through a variety of programs. We even bottle and sell our own water and 100% of the profits go to CCO.
Below are a few other initiatives we support for CCO:
As entrepreneurs ourselves, we always encourage others to pursue entrepreneurial passions, especially non-profits. Here are a few books written by one of our founders on how businesses can give back, using Lakefront Roofing and Siding Supply as one example.
In 1994, we opened a Narcom (Nehemiah Romanian Company), which was a roofing and construction material distribution center in Romania. Our goal was to help set up a business where much of the profits could be reinvested in the community for those most in need. At that time, creating a safe environment for pediatric AIDS children was the top priority, and the General Manager of Narcom was able to build two homes for these children between 1994 and 2015. Even though the business has ended, the General Manager is still actively involved in the community working towards creating a facility to assist in senior care, now one of the biggest concerns of the country.
A few other examples of how our team has prioritized giving back includes investing in safety initiatives and extensive work to assist the homeless. Co-Founder, Chris Spicer, took it upon himself to make sure all Lakefront Roofing Supply trucks and vehicles are held to a high level of safety by installing fender mirrors on all flatbed trucks. Another member of the Lakefront team is Jay Rothschild. Jay has taken a strong stance in helping to support the homeless as a founder of Uptown Outside, raising thousands of dollars through a GoFundMe campaign, social media efforts and a partnership with BellyAcres.com and distributing tents and weather protective materials to Uptown’s homeless.
