MEALS ON WHEELS CLIENTS WIN LON SMITH ROOFING’S “NO ROOF LEFT BEHIND” CONTEST
Meals On Wheels clients Melvin and Jessie of Fort Worth have been named as winners of a new roof in Lon Smith Roofing’s “No Roof Left Behind” initiative. The roof installation will start at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at 5620 Como Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76107.
Meals On Wheels clients won the new roof with the help of hundreds of Meals On Wheels supporters who voted for them online during the two weeks in September when the contest was open to the public.
Melvin and Jessie have been married for 56 years and have lived in Como since 1960. Five years ago, their health declined. Jessie had a stroke and now has very limited use of her left arm. Melvin has heart problems and now has a pacemaker. A couple of years ago, their foundation caused the roof to crack. With the little money they had, they were able to fix the foundation last year, but did not have the money to fix the roof. They now have a make-shift tin roof on the left side of their house, which leaks and has caused a lot of ceiling damage.
When they found out they won the roof, Jessie said, “We are so excited. We’ve been waiting over three years for a new roof. We just cannot believe it’s finally happening. What a good day.”
