#ClearTheList Returns To Help Teachers From Longview To DFW

The new school year has arrived, but Stonewater Roofing first helped nine lucky teachers get the supplies they needed for their classrooms. It was part of the East Texas company’s annual #ClearTheList campaign, a push to assist underpaid educators by fulfilling their Amazon wishlists.

This was Stonewater Roofing’s third year helping out teachers. It was also the company’s largest school supply drop ever, hand-delivering books, games, pens, stickers and much more. Instructors ranged from elementary to high school and stretched from the DFW area to Longview. Winners were chosen randomly, and this year just so happened to include two ladies from Owens Elementary School in Tyler.

  • Bonnie Carney, Holiday Heights Elementary School in North Richland Hills
  • Regina Cooper Ahn, Bridgemark Center For Learning in Tyler
  • Nicole Dickerson, Stanton-Smith Elementary School in Whitehouse
  • Tracy Dingler, Bullard Elementary School in Bullard
  • Sarah Galland, Velma Penny Elementary School in Lindale
  • Stephanie Pearce, Pine Tree Primary School in Longview
  • Amy Touchstone, Longview High School in Longview
  • Risa Wasik, Owens Elementary School in Tyler
  • Kayla Whiddon, Owens Elementary School in Tyler

The #ClearTheList movement started as a social media phenomenon. School districts simply cannot afford to buy all of the supplies needed for their classrooms. So, many educators started relying on the kindness of online strangers, posting their wishlists and sharing the registries on social media with the #ClearTheList hashtag. The campaign soon turned into a viral sensation.

“I’ve already spent a lot of money on my classroom, and there’s always more things to buy,” explained Dickerson as she learned that her list would be cleared. “There’s some things on there that we use every single day, like the paper and the markers, the things that get used up and we have to constantly buy.”

“I put so much into my classroom,” added Galland. “Not just money, but time and energy and just my whole heart.”

“If you teach with your heart first, more than anything, they’re going to remember that,” stated Touchstone about her Longview high schoolers. She said that many come from impoverished environments, and they deserve to have the same opportunities found elsewhere. “I feel like God put me in this position, at this school, for right now.”

Employees from Stonewater Roofing brought the overstuffed boxes of school supplies to the teachers before the new school year began. “We have come through probably the hardest year of our teaching careers,” said Carney, referencing the challenges that came about due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “This last group of kids made it, and I’m so looking forward to this new group of kids.”

Stonewater Roofing Reviews Roll In, Along With Severe Storms

Customers have given Stonewater Roofing an outstanding start to the new year, and we could not be more thankful. The first week of 2020 has seen multiple five-star reviews pop up on Google from residents across East Texas, eager to praise us for our quality workmanship, professionalism, site cleanup, customer service and more.

A number of our roofing experts were even applauded by name.

 

Michael Rushing and David Shoemaker, Stonewater Roofing employees, provided quality work with extra effort to details. I had some issues on material delivery. Michael found a solution to the problem, allowing the installation to be completed on time. The company installed quality undercovering and shingles in a professional manner and carefully removed all nails and debris upon job completion. I got what I paid for; quality materials, professional workmanship and they returned my calls promptly.

Wonderful experience working with Dillon, Gage and the team at Stonewater Roofing. They were very accommodating to our busy schedules and patient with our many questions as we were roof replacement “rookies.” The work crew replacing our roof were very professional and left our yard immaculate after the job was complete.

Jacob and Cary provided exceptional customer service coupled with quality and craftsmanship that were second to none! After a huge storm, we needed urgent roof repairs before more rain caused additional damage. Jacob came out the same day that I called and put tarps in place to protect our home from further damage until the insurance company determined total replacement was needed. Jacob even worked directly with our insurance company to make sure we were completely covered. Everyone with Stonewater went above and beyond to make sure every aspect of our roof was taken care of. Everything, start to finish, went incredibly smooth and we now have a beautiful new roof that will protect our family for many, many years to come! We highly recommend Stonewater Roofing!

Stonewater Roofing was able to quickly identify my issue causing a leak in my garage and resolve in a very timely manner. They were also able to identify other areas that needed attention and the causes. I am very pleased with their attention to detail and quality of work. I will definitely use and recommend them in the future.

Thank you so much to Stonewater Roofing for the professional manner and workmanship in which your crew reroofed my home. Thank you to Jordan for working with me on pricing over and above what insurance declined to pay. Thank you Cary Collum for being such a great Project Manager making sure the job was done properly. If you are looking to have a new roof, then I highly recommend Stonewater Roofing.

These positive reviews could not have come at a better time for other East Texas residents and business owners. Meteorologists are forecasting severe weather on the horizon with a threat for powerful winds and damaging hail. More roofs throughout the Tyler and Longview areas will likely be battered by the storms.

But now you know who to trust with your roofing needs.

After severe weather strikes, do not wait. If you think that your home or business may have been damaged by strong winds or large hail, contact the highly trained experts at Stonewater Roofing to schedule your free assessment and make sure that your property, and your family, are protected before the next round of storms arrives.
