Four years ago on June 18th the Alden Family lost a part of our family and our heart. We would like to honor our Heather Alden by making kindness a priority. She never met a stranger and changed the lives of everyone she met. We at Alden Roofing will be focusing on acts of kindness from June 1st through June 18th and “checking in” to the Alden Roofing Facebook page as well as using #HeartLikeHeather. This is all for a good cause as well!
We hope you will help honor her and make someone’s day by making kindness a priority as well.
