During this pandemic, the front-line essential employees have been working hard to not only protect us, but to make sure our loved ones are safe and cared for. There are so many, too — police, firefighters, grocery clerks, nurses, the food service industry, delivery personnel and more.

My thoughts recently have really been with the staff at nursing homes across the Capital Region. They are not only focused on caring for their residents, but they consider them family. They have always given them love and support, but now they must also reassure and comfort family members who are unable to visit. Nursing home staff are front-line heroes.

My friends at Pinnacle Roofing have had some of the same thoughts and put together TWO really amazing prize packages for Raise the Roof for Local Essential Workers. It's really simple: We're asking you to nominate a special essential worker who could use a new roof, gutters and chimney service.

Then, from your nominations, we'll select a grand prize winner May 29 who will receive:

  • A new roof from Pinnacle Roofing
  • New gutters from Same Day Seamless Gutters
  • Chimney service from AllPhase Masonry and Chimney

A second lucky winner will receive $1,000 in MasterCard gift cards from Owens Corning to use for anything you might need!

The story behind this giveaway is pretty special, too. The crews at Pinnacle Roofing can't work right now under the stay-at-home order, but they wanted to do something to ease the burden of those essential workers who are the true heroes during this pandemic. Pinnacle Roofing is a local company that truly is part of the fabric of the Capital Region.

Imagine how much this prize package would mean to someone whose home needs a little work! While they're taking care of us, we've got them covered!
