Portland, ME – Tecta America’s Portland crew recently donated its time to install a commercial roof onto the new Portland Ronald McDonald House (RMH) addition.
The mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities is to create, find and support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children and their families.
When the addition to the 1856 Greek Revival building is complete, it will provide 15 additional guest rooms, two kitchens, a laundry room, more common areas and dining space, and more outdoor space for guests to enjoy.
Working in collaboration with Peter Horch Roofing, team members helped make RMH bigger, better, and able to help even more families whose children are being treated at area hospitals.
Project manager Mark Drummond said, “It was rewarding to help make the Ronald McDonald House larger so it can help more families while their children are hospitalized.”
Not only did the Portland team donate the labor to roof the addition, but Tecta America New England’s Brockton, Mass.; Billerica, Mass.; and East Hartford, Conn. branches also made donations to the project.
The Portland House, the 70th Ronald McDonald House, opened its doors in 1995 thanks to a diverse group of community leaders banded together, known as Stand by Me.
