Marks the Fifth Year of Guardian’s HALO Project, a Community Program
September 8, 2023 (SEATTLE) Auburn-based and family-owned Guardian Roofing, Gutters & Insulation had a milestone roof installation celebrating 5 years of giving back to the community through the Guardian HALO Project, which helps provide a family in need with a new roof or roof repair. The recipient of the much-deserved and needed new roof is Tacoma resident Karen Corrigan.
In July, Ms. Corrigan, who has worked for Goodwill Industries for almost 25 years. received a new roof and additional repairs as part of the fifth annual award through this by-nomination contest held annually by Guardian Roofing, Gutters & Insulation. She was nominated by Rebuilding Together South Sound, which was instrumental in the inception of the Guardian HALO program five years ago.
Since 2018, Guardian’s internally led team has annually participated in the company-driven, community-serving program. “Individually and collectively, we look forward to this time that we can best give back to our community in a way that is unique to our company and culture. With the HALO project, we offer the gift and a major roof repair or replacement to one local homeowner, who has been nominated by other members of the community. Then we gather for the installation that we hope can help improve the lives of those in our community, like Ms. Corrigan, with the peace of mind that a new roof gives,” says Lori Swanson, owner of Guardian Roofing, Gutters & Insulation.
In addition to the new roof and repairs for Ms. Corrigan, in honor of the five year anniversary of the HALO Project, Guardian has committed to the support of five additional charities including:
- Rebuilding Together of South Sound https://www.rebuildingtogetherss.org/
- Auburn Food Bank – https://www.theauburnfoodbank.org/
- Permission to Start Dreaming Foundation/Race for a Soldier https://ptsdfoundation.org/about/
- American Cancer Society – https://www.cancer.org/
- And Catholic Community Services (chosen by the HALO Recipient) https://ccsww.org/
“The HALO project process is a reminder that we are all part of a gracious community where people truly come first,” says Luke De Monnin, HALO Project Manager for Guardian Roofing, Gutters & Insulation. “The long-term impact and security of the structural health of a new roof for Ms. Corrigan, along with all our customers, is at the forefront of any project we work on. This one just holds a bit more of a special place knowing that we can continue to make a positive impact in our PNW community where we hope to continue and grow this program for many years.”
The Meaning Of Halo
“We believe it is important to understand the basis of this project to understand how deep its reach is,” says Swanson. “Simply put, the ‘H’ stands for helping, this can include helping the community and families, or simply enriching others’ lives. ‘A’ stands for achieving a purpose and successfully filling a need. ‘L’ stands for lasting, not only a company that lasts but fostering lasting relationships as well. Finally, ‘O’ stands for overcome meaning completing people’s needs that resulted from outlying obstacles.”
