In light of the September 11 terrorist attacks, The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) has asked its members to consider making monetary donations to the American Red Cross through an effort that is being coordinated by the American Society of Association Executives.

Funds donated to the American Red Cross will be used directly for the relief effort and all contributions are tax-deductible. NRCA will contribute at least $5,000. The collective contribution will be recognized as coming from the U.S. roofing industry.

Checks or money orders should be made payable to the American Red Cross but mailed to NRCA’s office at 10255 W. Higgins Road, Suite 600, Rosemont, Ill. 60018. For information contact Kathleen Chmura, NRCA’s executive assistant, at 847-299-9070, ext. 222; fax 847-299-1183; or kchmura@
