JACKSON, Tenn. — In a heartwarming holiday story, a local woman is getting a brand new roof for Christmas at no cost to her.
Cathy Barker was the winner of Reed’s Metals’ “Covering our Community” award this year. She has been working at Kroger since 2007 and has been going through hard times over the last few years. She says she has needed a new roof for a couple years.
“It’s great. It’s really great,” Barker said. “I’ve been off work for a really long time. I don’t know what to say — it’s such a surprise.”
Reed’s Metals will start construction next week. Cathy was chosen out of around 100 local applicants.
