The Dewitt Tilton Group, a commercial construction firm in Savannah, donated their services to the Savannah Jaycees to rebuild a BBQ pit roof that fell during stormy weather. Guerry Lumber, a Lumber Company that has served Savannah since 1927, and ABC Supply, the largest wholesale distributor of roofing in the United States, have also donated materials to the project.
The Jaycees include young business professionals dedicated to leadership growth through community involvement. As the only Jaycees chapter in the state with their own office, the Savannah jaycees use their building for meetings, events and leadership speakers.
The BBQ pit roof often serves as an outdoor shelter for the group’s community activities, such as the Surging Forward Picnic, which was held for first responders and firefighters during Hurricane Matthew cleanup.
Since it was damaged by the hurricane and the storms this spring, the Jaycees have been unable to reassemble and secure the roof. So The Dewitt Tilton Group reached out to them and offered to rebuild and install a new roof.
“I have seen the culture of altruistic service and progressive thinking the Savannah Jaycees promotes in our community,” said Dewitt Tilton partner Chris Tilton. “They give so much to Savannah, so when the opportunity presented itself to give back to their group, we jumped on it.”
Jaycees president Cynthia Wright said the roof could not have been reinstalled without help.
“We are so thankful that the Dewitt Tilton Group saw our need and chose to show their support for our organization with a project that will serve us both now and in the future,” Wright said.
