The Rooftop Foundation is holding its annual shopping tour for the kids at the Moulton Elementary School this Saturday. The Rooftop Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by Ken and Esta Deever of Deever Roofing.
Every year the Deevers (and 60 volunteers) load up two bus loads of children and arrange to take the children shopping for their families. The children are not permitted to buy gifts for themselves as we try to teach the philosophy "it is better to give than receive". Along the way we manage to stop at McDonald’s for breakfast and the children also receive a surprise gift bag of their own after wrapping gifts for their families.
In addition to the elementary children, our Santa has made it a priority to help spread Christmas cheer at the Young Women’s Resource Center and to children in cancer treatment at Blank Children’s Hospital in Des Moines.
It is an honor and a privilege to be a part of such a great organization. One hundred percent of all donations go to benefit the children. I am also excited because we have a new Web site coming very soon by Sandy Renshaw of Purple Wren.
