We're Working Together to End Domestic & Sexual Violence
We raised the most funds ever -- $35,150 -- during our 7th annual campaign to reduce domestic and sexual violence in our communities.
For every square of CertainTeed roofing and siding, GAF Roofing, IKO roofing, Mastic siding and Owens Corning Roofing you purchased in March, we donated $1 to organizations that are working to end domestic and sexual violence in our communities.
Through the campaign, we've raised over $180,350 since 2013.
The campaign benefits these important organizations. Click the links to learn more about them and their work.
