Since day one, David Crowther and CFS Roofing have been committed to the continued growth of the community. Our team members remain active members of several Southwest Florida charitable organizations, donating both our time and our resources.
Habitat for Humanity
CFS Roofing Services has been a partner with Habitat for Humanity since our doors opened. We support Habitat’s vision: “A world where everyone has a decent place to live.” We are proud to be a part of giving struggling families in need a hand up. “At CFS Roofing Services, we all understand that giving back to our community is the right thing to do, it’s our way to thanking the many customers who have helped us become successful,” said David Crowther.
PACE Center for Girls
PACE Center for Girls is a place where young women can become the person they want to be. Every year CFS Roofing provides time, skill, material, services and/or monetary donations to this wonderful facility and program. PACE offers year round counseling and academic services for girls ages 12-18, who are facing challenges. Established in 2007, PACE has helped over 600 girls find success in school, generate positive relationships with their families and peers, and become productive members of our community. “We are proud to be annual sponsors of the PACE program and facility, my wife Karen served on their board since 2007 and we understand first-hand the important role PACE plays in the life’s of these young girls,” commented David Crowther.
Fort Myers Pro Rodeo is a homegrown event that benefits Brotherhood Ride. CFS Roofing and Karen Crowther sponsor this exciting event, which is coordinated by Casey and Margo Crowther. Fort Myers Pro Rodeo brings together local folks and competitors from around the country to partake in a thrilling two day rodeo every March. Each years, the event continues to grow and raise more money for Brotherhood Ride, a nonprofit honoring Florida’s fallen first responders.
Brotherhood Rides was started in 2007, by a group of North Naples Firefighters who wanted to honor nine members of the Charleston SC Fire Departments that perished in the line of duty on June 18, 2007. The Brotherhood Ride consists of firefighters, law enforcement officers, and emergency medical personnel. Each year, members ride their bicycles from Florida to the hometown of an unsung hero or heroes. The Brotherhood’s mission is to provide financial and emotional support to the families of fallen first responders.
Nations Association Charities
Established in 1978 by Reverend Dr. Israel Suarez, recognized in 1990 by President George H.W. Bush as a Point of Light, Nations Association provides programs such as Drug Stop, GALA Girls, TOP (Teen Outreach Program), and scholarships to help transform at-risk youth in the Southwest Florida Community. “When you see hard work and grassroots efforts that goes into the programs provided by the Nations Association Charities, you want to be part of it. We are proud to donate dollars—as well as time and products, to assist the volunteers and staff at Nations Association help our local young people,” says David Crowther.
Tucked away in a cozy historic home, Valerie’s House programs give children ages 4 to 19 years-old and their families a safe place to share, grieve, and grow. Our programs are provided free of charge, thanks to generous donations, grants, and volunteer support. We know that no one grieves the same. Our overall effort is to lovingly assist children and their caregivers on their journeys towards mending broken hearts. Valerie’s House is modeled after the nationally-recognized and acclaimed Dougy Center for Grieving Children & Families. Programs at Valerie’s House include open-ended peer support groups and activities to help children to heal after a significant loss in their life. While it is not a formal counseling center, Valerie’s House provides a community and a platform for individuals to come together, share and mentor one another through grief, and create supportive bonds they can take into their futures.
Next Level Church
Matt and Sarah Keller had it in their hearts, as high school sweethearts, that they wanted to be local church pastors. They also knew that “planting” a church somewhere was a great way to do that. God has used them to lead the church from 30 people, at its grand opening in 2002, to now over 3,400 people in three locations.
