As a local company operating in Calgary and Edmonton for more than 65 years, our community is important to us here at A. Clark Roofing & Siding. We are Albertans through and through, and we put the same meticulous care and passion into our community as we do every roofing and siding project. A. Clark has been proud and honoured to help support the STARS Lottery for over a decade, in support of the STARS Air Ambulance.
STARS Air Ambulance
STARS provides emergency response services with their fleet of helicopters and well-trained medical staff. In situations where seconds count and areas too remote for quick medical access, STARS is a lifesaving program with many heartwarming success stories, handling over 22,000 emergency calls each year, and an average of 8 missions each day. Funds raised for STARS Lottery directly supports reducing response times, funding cutting-edge technology to save lives, and providing continuous training for response workers.
How A. Clark Roofing & Siding supports
For over ten years, A. Clark Roofing & Siding in Edmonton has donated materials and labor for the incredible grand prize homes auctioned off in the STARS Lottery, one of the organization’s main sources of funding for maintaining and operating rescue services. Through our partnership with Concept Homes and the Hinteregger family, we are proud to help build show-stopping homes for an incredible cause.
In Calgary, A. Clark Roofing & Siding has donated roofing installations from 2010 – 2016 for Augusta Fine Homes, 2017 for Nu Vista Homes, and in 2019 with Trico Homes.
When floor plans for the STARS Lottery Home arrive at A. Clark, our estimating team ensures that the project uses the highest standard of specifications for a residential home. This includes Ice and Water Shield along eaves and valleys, prefinished steel flashing, and drip edge flashing along all eave lines to protect the last row of shingles. The shingles for the 2019 lottery home were BP Mystique architectural shingles, which were donated by our partners at (Building Products of Canada) for the project. Delivery of materials on-site was donated by one of our main suppliers for shingles and delivery in Edmonton and its surrounding satellites. Lastly, labour for the installation of the roofing system is donated by A. Clark Roofing and Siding LP, along with final inspections and job site cleanup.
STARS Air Ambulance is a cause close to our hearts here at A. Clark Roofing & Siding, as one of our valued team members was saved by the organization.
“In March 2016 Stars Air Ambulance flew me to the Foothills Hospital Trauma Unit in critical condition after a car accident on a highway outside of Calgary. I sustained internal injuries, severed nerves, 4 broken vertebrae, and multiple pelvic fractures. without immediate medical intervention I would likely not be here” – A. Clark Team Member
