Angel Beltran is a marketing coordinator at Antis Roofing and Waterproofing — a roofing and waterproofing provider for homeowners’ associations and multi-family residential communities in Southern California. Their mission: to keep families safe and dry. They accomplish this through their prowess in roof maintenance and by supporting nonprofits!
In 2017, Antis donated over $700,000 in cash and in-kind donations to over 40 of the local and national nonprofits they support. They’ve also provided and installed the roofs of every Habitat for Humanity home built in Orange County since 2009, pro bono (nearly 70 homes) — a noteworthy accomplishment!
It’s this determination to good causes that led Angel to take the lead in rallying engaged staff to participate in VolunteerMatch’s #GiveTime Sweeps. Responsible for capturing video submissions, editing in post-production, and publishing on social media, Angel oversaw every step of the campaign.
“On #GivingTuesday we had approximately 10 employees that talked about the nonprofits they support [as part of VolunteerMatch’s #GiveTime sweeps],” says Susan DeGrassi, Antis’ director of cause. “Annually we contribute hundreds of hours in volunteer time to the community.”
The More We Give, The More We Grow! This #GivingTuesday we want to highlight a few of the nonprofit organizations we support throughout the year. We #GiveTime to @RonaldHouseOC @habitatoc and @OCAlzheimers. Where do you give? @VolunteerMatch #AntisRoofing #LiveToGive pic.twitter.com/7Jqc2e7cNZ

In the video, their employees share their thoughts around volunteering, and how putting time, talent, and money to good use can make the world (and our communities) better places. They discussed a few of the organizations they’re most passionate about, including Ronald McDonald House, Habitat for Humanity, and Alzheimer’s Orange County.
“We have over 100 staff, the majority of which work as technicians in the field,” explains Susan. “Those field technicians are the employees that work on all of our ‘Roof Gives.’” Antis’ Roof Gives is a program where they donate roof repairs, maintenances, and re-roofs to buildings owned by nonprofits every year. Last year, they donated over $250,000 in in-kind roof building and maintenance services.
Understanding the benefits of employee volunteering early-on, Antis Roofing and Waterproofing is currently formalizing a policy around offering employees 16 paid volunteer time off (VTO) each year.
When notified of their winning submission, they conducted a holiday office contest where the winning team’s prize was determining the recipient of their $250 donation — talk about a commitment to employee engagement! The winning team decided to donate to the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation (PCRF), an organization they regularly spotlight thanks to their partnership with the Honda Center.
Thank you, Antis Roofing and Waterproofing, for your impressive commitment to social good!
