Straight Line Roofing and Construction recently hosted its fifth annual Thanks and Giving Customer Appreciation Party at the Cameron Park Community Services District.

This annual event is something area residents including customers and employees of Straight Line Roofing look forward to every year. Everyone has an opportunity to gather for holiday cheer and raise funds for the Food Bank of El Dorado County.

“The crew at Straight Line Roofing has been simply amazing in their ongoing dedication to the hungry of El Dorado County,” said Mike Sproull, of the Food Bank of El Dorado County. “The Food Bank is proud of this relationship that feeds thousands of less fortunate children, seniors and families in communities throughout El Dorado County. Together we make a difference.”

Times are tougher than ever with the current economy and it is the generosity of Straight Line’s customers that will put food on the table for many that may otherwise go without.

After setting a goal of raising at least $5,000, Straight Line Roofing went above and beyond the call of duty, raising a total of $6,000 in donations from the event for the food bank.

“As a local business, it is our responsibility to recognize and address the needs of the community,“ said Jack Borba, president of Straight Line. “As a partner, we are proud that we can come together and serve our community. We are very grateful for the support our customers and local businesses have given this important event.”

The Straight Line Roofing Thanks and Giving event has been a significant contributor for the local food bank since 2006.

The company offers commercial as well as residential services for roofing and roof repairs, construction, additions and much more. To learn more about the company’s services go to straightlineroofing.com.

The food bank is the largest collaborative charity in El Dorado County. It is in partnership with more than 40 local emergency food response sites and provides assistance on a daily basis, to women’s shelters, senior centers, local food pantries, soup kitchens, maternity homes and more.
