At Core Contractors, we extend our motto of “doing it right matters” beyond our roofing services and into community resources. Our company feels it is important to be involved in and to give back to the neighborhoods we live and work in, so we give all employees a paid day off each quarter to go out and volunteer around town.

We strongly believe all the groups and organizations we have associated with over our years of work have helped shape our company, so we are honored to repay the positive impact and proud of the volunteer efforts that our employees put forth in Denver area communities.

Below are a few of the non-profits our team members have chosen to become involved with over the years. We are excited to continue this endeavor of civic engagement for years to come, helping our community grow stronger and more vibrant.

CORE CONTRACTORS’ AMANDA TRONTELL DONTATES TO DISASTER RELIEF FOR HARVEY FLOOD VICTIMS

As a professionally trained disaster relief expert and part of NECHAMA (meaning “comfort” in Hebrew), Core Contractors’ own Amanda Trontell recently donated her time to help victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston.

Amanda has assisted in disaster relief aid for heavy flooding, hurricanes and tornados all across the country. Since 2010, Amanda has donated her time and expertise in Detroit, St. Louis (twice), Baton Rouge, Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, North Dakota as well Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina.

Amanda’s main responsibilities were to train volunteers from the University of Michigan over a five-day period. Her training included helping those whose homes were flooded by installing insulation, repairing and replacing drywall through to finished paint. Amanda lead a team of thirteen volunteers but her main initiative was to train two of these volunteers to become team leaders on their own for future disaster relief aid.

NECHAMA operates under the philosophy of helping repair the world through acts of kindness and Amanda demonstrates these attributes on a regular basis. Her passion for helping others resulted in taking five days of unpaid time off from Core, with the exception of one day because Core encourages employees to take a paid day each quarter to volunteer for a non-profit of their choosing. Amanda’s commitment to helping others is a shining example of the type of people we aspire to hire within Core’s organization.

Her personal values, actions and diligence are direct reflections of the culture in which Core Contractors strives for when building a solid team. We are proud to call Amanda a Core Contractors teammate and are even more proud of her selfless acts in helping those in need.

Baird Survival Bags

 
The Baird Survival Bag was kick started in November 2016 to help out a homeless man named Terry. A 35 year old man who stood by the entrance of a 7-Eleven during the coldest days of winter opening doors for customers asking if he could have a warm cup of coffee. Always polite and had a big smile on his face. Alan Baird, our co-worker, wanted to help him get back on his feet and get him back onto the road of success. That’s when the Baird Survival Bag was created.

With a goal of 10 bags, or $350, Alan was able to raise over $5000 through a Go Fund Me page set up for him by another co-worker. We were able to collect, build and deliver 100 Baird Survival Bags for the homeless right before Christmas in 2017.

A couple local news stations showed up to film some pieces. You can see the stories below:

TOSA - The Other Side Academy

 
The Other Side Academy is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, social enterprise modeled after the Delancey Street Foundation in San Francisco. Repeat criminals and chronic substance abusers, many of whom experience homelessness, can change their lives, free of charge, in a two-year, residential, non-clinical, work-oriented environment.

The Other Side Academy functions as a school where students learn vocational, pro-social, and life skills so they can succeed on “the other side” of addiction and criminal behavior.

Neighborhood Rehab Project

 
Core Contractors participated in the Neighborhood Rehab Project’s annual “Be a Tool” volunteer day. Core Contractors employees tore off a hail damaged low slope roof in Golden, CO and replaced it with self-adhering rolled rubber roofing. It took us all day, but it felt like quite an accomplishment considering the size of the roof we replaced. Most importantly, we were able to help a family in need who wouldn’t have otherwise been able to afford a new roof.

Cecil Brown Project

When Cecil’s mother passed away, his former co-worker, Lindsay Hill, was informed that some people in his life were attempting to take exploit him. Cecil suffers from Klinefelter’s syndrome and has developmental disabilities. They tried to prove he couldn’t make his own decisions so they could take his home and the few possessions that his mother had left him. Lindsay stepped in and contacted adult protective services and stopped these people just in time.

When Lindsay first got involved, she was shocked. His home had been infested with bed bugs for several years, he’d been sleeping on a hard wood floor and had very little food in his refrigerator.

She’s gained support from Comprehensive Community Based Services, Rocky Mountain Human Services, Advocacy Denver, Adult Protective Services, Cecil’s co-workers and church, but his funds are extremely limited and that’s when she reached out to the community.

Core Contractors caught wind of this story on FOX 31, and reached out to Lindsay. Core employees donated their time by replacing his entire gutter system which was in shambles, facia, downspouts, replaced some broken shingles, pipe boots, cleaned up and removed a number of piles of dead bushes and built him two planter boxes so he had a sustainable food source.

Junior Achievement Rocky Mountain - Finance Park

Core Contractors has frequently volunteered at Junior Achievement’s Finance Park over the past few years. This program helps junior and high school students from around the state to learn how to budget for the real world.

They are given a fictitious identity with a job title, salary and family status and then have to learn to navigate the real work by applying for a home and car loan, budgeting for groceries, car payments, insurance, clothing and so forth. Each Core employee helps with guidance by providing real life examples and lessons learned as we had navigated our own adulthood.
