Hackman Roofing selects two winners of the
2nd Annual “Shelter from the Storm” Roof Giveaway.
Two area residents have been selected as winners of the 2nd Annual “Shelter from the Storm” Roof Giveaway! Clyde Hawbecker, of Camp Hill, and Darlee Ansel, of Mechanicsburg, will have the roofs of their homes replaced at no charge.
This past May, Hackman Roofing invited area residents to nominate a struggling family or individual in need of a new roof during the 2nd Annual “Shelter from the Storm” Roof Giveaway program.
“During the course of this year’s campaign, someone stepped forward and offered to pay for a second roof,” explains Hackman Roofing Specialist Ed Iovino. “Now we are able to help our community by installing two roofs.”
“I can hardly believe it!” exclaimed Clyde Hawbecker, who was selected from 17 submissions. A World War II Veteran, Clyde was nominated by his daughter Cindy Estes, of Dillsburg. “My father is 85-years-old and is the nicest, kind-hearted soul you will every meet in your lifetime,” Cindy wrote in her submission.
“He is too proud to ask for anything and has always worked hard his entire life. Because of age, dad is not able to take care of major things around the house that he built himself in 1956. The roof is leaking on the second floor, where he has buckets and pots catching the water, and the outside surface is covered with lichen.”
Darlee Ansel, whose roof is currently covered by a tarp, was nominated by her neighbor Michelle Knight. According to Michelle, “Darlee is a mother who loves her children and cares about others. She is also a woman who struggles to make ends meet but still keeps an open door to her children and grandchildren no matter their situation or need.”
Both Clyde and Darlee’s roofs will be replaced mid-August. Labor and materials donated by Hackman Roofing, ABC Supply Co. and GAF.
