No Roof Left Behind Campaign

No Roof Left Behind Campaign

Meals On Wheels has teamed up with Lon Smith Roofing in order to provide Mrs. Brooks, a Meals On Wheels client with roof repair. Mrs. Brooks is 88-years-old. She moved to Texas to be closer to her daughter and worked in hospice care until she retired about ten years ago. She is a wonderful lady and is on every single Meals On Wheels program including pet food which helps support her dog. Mrs. Brooks lives in a 14×72 foot trailer with a steel roof which is rusted badly. The roof leaks on the west side of her trailer, beginning at the main entry door and continuing to the bathroom in the rear.

Lon Smith workers will arrive at Mrs. Brooks’ address of 5405 Black Drive, Haltom City, Texas 76137 around 9 or 10 am. It should take two days to complete.

For more information, please contact David Depuma with Meals On Wheels at 817-258-6433 or at Also, contact Scott Hamilton with Lon Smith at 817-926-8400 or at
