Breast Cancer Awareness
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Thomas Jefferson Roofing and Remodeling, a small, local, family owned business is spending all of October raising money for Breast Cancer Awareness. Why are we raising money for breast cancer?
One reason we do this in honor and memory of loved ones here and past that have suffered with breast cancer. The second reason we do this is we or our children could be affected by breast cancer.
Therefore, DONATE Susan G Komen Fundraising and help save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.
When you DONATE Thomas Jefferson Roofing will give you:
A FREE 17 Point Roof Inspection.

Even a $1 donation will get you a Free Roof Inspection THEN we at TJRR will also donate to the Foundation.
