Congratulations to Simon Roofing
This years 2022 Spirit of the Red Cross Award Recipient!
Simon Roofing has remained a family-owned company for more than 120 years. It is now managed by third and fourth-generation members of the Simon and Vross families. The lifelong residents of the Mahoning Valley are committed to making a positive impact within the community and to helping improve the lives of others. Many of Simon Roofing's employees share the same belief and donate their time, talents, and treasure to local charities and civic organizations.
"Simon Roofing has a rich history in the Mahoning Valley, as does the American Red Cross," said Rachel D'Attoma, executive director of the Red Cross of Greater Akron and the Mahoning Valley. "They embody the mission of our organization, and we are proud to present them with the Spirit of The Red Cross Award."
In addition to the Red Cross, Simon Roofing supports numerous charities in the Mahoning Valley, including Potential Development Schools for Students with Autism, United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, Project MKC, Children's Rehabilitation Center, Yellow Brick Place, The Rich Center for Autism, and Akron Children's Hospital of the Mahoning Valley.
Your gift of support matters more then ever.
With over 100 fires here in Northern Ohio just in July alone and the disastrous flooding in Eastern Kentucky, the mission of the Red Cross has never been more important. Whether it is installing fire alarms in homes or providing boots on the ground in a disaster zone, your gift makes it possible for us to provide aid and comfort when the unthinkable happens.
