When Cory and Melissa Valentini got their roofing business ramped up for the summer season, they wanted to take their success and turn it into success for the whole community.

The owner/operators of Up Right Roofing, the Valentinis knew it had been a tough year for so many, including local organizations who rely on donations.

“We wanted to do something, in an ongoing fashion, to help the many people that were still struggling in our community,” they said. “We committed to donate $300 from every job we completed in the 2020 roofing season. We expected to complete 30 roofing projects and we are very happy to have completed 34 roofing projects allowing us to donate a total of $10,200.”

The donation of $10,200 was split between SIRCH Community Services, YWCA Peterborough Haliburton and Point in Time Centre for Children and Youth, each receiving $3,400. (Read more…)
