Together with corporate and community partners of "Rebuilding Together", Sika volunteers repair homes, revitalize communities and rebuild lives. Rebuilding Together’s local affiliates and nearly 100,000 volunteers in total complete about 10,000 rebuild projects nationwide each year.

Annual Community Service Day

Since more than 10 years, Sika has acted as the main sponsor of the Community Service Day that takes place each year during the International Roofing Exposition (IRE). The first year of this meaningful sponsorship for Sika was in New Orleans in 2010 giving back to those still feeling the effects of Hurricane Katrina years later. Each year the IRE has been partnering with the non-profit organization Rebuilding Together to identify people in need in the local community where the show is taking place and manage the needed renovations.

The Community Service Day brings together people from across the roofing industry to donate a day of their time to do a variety of improvement work on the homes of members of the local community in need.

Giving back to local communities

In 2019, Sika USA was teaming up with the IRE and Rebuilding Together for their annual community service day at the Boy's and Girl's Club of Middle Tennessee. IRE partnered with Rebuilding Together Nashville to rebuild the homes of 5 homeowners unable to make necessary home improvements. Volunteers also worked on local Boys & Girls Club community center.

In 2020, Sika Sarnafil has acted as the primary sponsor of the IRE show program as well. This annual gathering brings dozens of volunteers together from throughout the roofing industry to donate a day of their time during the conference week so they can give back to the local community. Since its founding, the event has only continued to expand with increasing roofing industry volunteers each year. This year’s IRE conference was held in Dallas, Texas.

Each year, Sika Sarnafil donates $15,000 to the IRE in partnership with the local chapter of Rebuilding Together to identify projects in the local community that needs assistance. This donation helps pay for construction material supplies as well as the labor efforts of the Rebuilding Together staff. Typically, a few local homes in need are identified, though this year also found necessary upgrades at a local,  underfunded elementary school. This sort of donation also provides assistance for projects beyond the single volunteer day, which is why Sika Sarnafil is eager to promote the need for corporate donation and assistance for Rebuilding Together.
