Helping Hands Bring Communities Together

Helping Hands Bring Communities Together

Happy volunteer family putting their hands together on a sunny dIt can happen to anyone, even kids…  and it has affected most of us in one way or another.

It seems these days everyone knows someone — whether it be a family member, a friend, a coworker, or a neighbor, who has been affected by cancer.

And, if it wasn’t for our very own Sam Courtright, today’s story would not have taken shape. For it was Sam who met with Mary Alice and Rich Shiller of Randolph, about new windows and siding. But, Mary Alice and Rich were more concerned about helping their deserving neighbors.

The Shiller’s shared a story about their neighbor’s daughter, Paige who has battled Leukemia since 2012.

We learned the families’s roof had been leaking and the family was suffering financial and emotional hardships, dealing with the cancer treatments.

It was then that everyone felt compelled to help this family in need. It’s simply about doing the right thing and helping others.

So we got busy! We wanted to provide this humble family with a new, safe, and secure roof; and that’s exactly what we did.

New Call-to-action

Living in such a close-knit community allowed us to reach out to other business owners and ask them to join us in helping this great family. We were fortunate to have one of our roofing material distributors from Chatham, Myles Kelly to join forces with us.

Mr. Kelly donated all the building materials we needed to complete the entire project.

As the project came together, we also found some of the interior walls were damaged; that’s when general contractor, John Keane stepped in and repaired the walls at no charge.

I love when local companies can come together for a greater purpose to help others. That’s what it’s really all about.

In the end, the project came together better than we could have anticipated! I always say, “good things happen to good people.”  

More of the Same

At Creo Construction, we believe helping our fellow Morris County neighbors is what it’s all about.

The fact is, we all need help from time-to-time; by coming together as a community it forms a bond that allows us to work together for the greater good.

The best news out of this entire story is Paige, the teen battling Leukemia, is officially in remission.

Let us know your story, and let me see how we can help.

Let’s get the job done right!
