Longmeadow resident wins No Roof Left Behind contest

Date: 6/18/2014

SPRINGFIELD – Karen Beck of Longmeadow has been named as the winner of a new roof in Adam Quenneville’s No Roof Left Behind initiative.

Beck was one of four finalists out of more than 125 nominations. After public voting her family won with 54 percent of the vote.

Beck shared, “A 4 a.m. knock on the door changed our lives forever. My only child had perished at the hands of an uninsured drunk driver, leaving me to raise her two young daughters with minimal outside assistance.

“In my haze of grief, I purchased an older home in the best neighborhood within my financial reach, in order to provide the most stability possible for my two motherless angels. Working full-time and being single grandmother ‘mom’ has taken its toll, emotionally and financially.

“Shingles have blown off the roof causing it to leak into the home, and I have been unable to afford to repair the roof,” she continued.

When Beck was called and told she won she said, “Thank you so much. Thanks to everyone who voted for us.” 

The community is invited to a celebration at her home while her new roof is installed on June 22.

“It took four years for the man responsible for this chaos I call my new life to be convicted and sentenced. The Installation Celebration will be seven years, almost to the day, and the perfect turning point to my chaos,” Beck said.

Adam Quenneville has scheduled the project for June 22, weather permitting.  The Installation Celebration will kick-off the project. This will be a family friendly, festival-style neighborhood event with free hamburgers and hot dogs and all are welcome from noon to 2 p.m. at the winner’s home, 84 Homestead Blvd., Longmeadow.
