Peterson Roofing, Inc. announced it is sponsoring two free roofs in 2014 as a part of the national "No Roof Left Behind" campaign. The company opened the contest to all residents of North Cook County, but said the finalists would be individuals who are in genuine need and have given back to their local community.
The four finalists are as follows:
- Mary Ackman of Mt. Prospect -- A caring and loving mother and friend has been living in Mt. Prospect since the 1960's. She recently suffered medical challenges and could use the support of the community she has supported her whole life.
- Carey Riedhammer of Des Plaines -- A deserving senior citizen widow with a leaking roof. A continual supporter of St. Emily's Parish in Mt. Prospect, she is currently suffering from a leaky roof and gutter problems. With no social security income and being unemployed, she could use a little good fortune.
- Gary Altergott of Elk Grove Village -- A Vietnam Veteran and father of two, his 30-year roof is failing after only 15 years. Losing his job in 2006, this veteran who has given back to his country could use a new roof over his head.
- Henry Blim of Mt. Prospect -- A 90 year old WWII veteran in need of a new roof. A local hero, Henry has always given back to his community. Now he could use the community support to help win a free roof.

"We had an incredible number of wonderful nominees this year. The process to narrow to the final four was extremely challenging,"
Voting will continue until June 15th. The winner will be announced on June 16th. Peterson Roofing officials say the free roof, valued between $8,000 and $12,000, will be finished this summer.
Peterson Roofing also said that they are currently accepting nominations for their second roof give-away to be installed this fall.
