Universal Roof and Contracting Joins Walk for Life

Share Article

At Universal Roof & Contracting, their associates want to do more than install new roofs. Looking to improve their city and be a positive influence in their community, Universal Contracting Community Works (UCCW) joined forces with local organization True Life Choice on a walk to save lives.

Universal Contracting employees participate in the 2014 True Life Choice Walk for Life.

As we wait on the final count for funds raised through YOU, our faithful partners at our Walk for Life, we give thanks to GOD and YOU for pushing us to $49,000 raised and counted so far! - True Life Choice

On Saturday, March 8th, associates and family members from Universal Roof & Contracting joined hundreds of walkers among three Orlando, Florida locations for the True Life Choice (TLC) Walk for Life 2014. Their goal was to increase awareness and gain financial support for the non-profit organization and for the families who regularly receive life-affirming and practical counsel.

The west Orlando walk location was hosted by the First Baptist Church of Central Florida where Senior Pastor Clayton Cloer, TLC Board Vice President Laura Romot, and Congressman Daniel Webster shared with passion their vision and stories about lives changed and saved by the efforts of True Life Choice. The mission of TLC is to equip individuals to make informed, life-affirming choices regarding unplanned pregnancies and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Calculations are not yet complete, but so far, the Walk for Life 2014 has raised $49,000.
