Giving Back to Our Community by Shaping the Future

At Ferguson Roofing we are deeply committed to giving back to the community that has supported us over the past 80+ years. We believe that the best way to do this is to center our charitable efforts around the youth—the future of our community.

Our mission is to share our knowledge and resources through donations, volunteering, and other means of support with organizations to uplift our youth through wellness, education, and inclusion.

Three Pillars of Giving Back to Our Youth

Each organization we choose to partner with must excel in at least one of our three pillars, with intentions to grow or collaborate with other organizations to fill any gaps.

Ferguson Roofing Doing Good Missouri Interscholastic Cycling League

Missouri Interscholastic Cycling League (MICL)

MICL, as the Missouri Chapter of the parent organization, National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA), is focused on getting #morekidsonbikes. Mountain biking is the largest growing youth interscholastic sport right now. The MICL has a league format, allowing the youth to develop physical skills, self-esteem, collaboration, and ethics through the medium of mountain biking. The coach’s training is very comprehensive and the development of the youth comes first. The group training rides are respectful of the various skill levels of the participants. Those less interested in racing can participate in trail building and experiential adventures on the bike. Those more capable on bikes can excel into serious racers. Learning to ride bikes with others is a lifelong skill. As it is said in the industry: families that ride together, stay together.

KidSmart

Kidsmart, quite simply, provides essential tools so learning can happen. Many homes and schools are underfunded and the basics for classroom educations are not available to many children. Kidsmart works to remove this barrier to learning by providing free educational tools. They work with local businesses and the community to get the necessary supplies. They can then provide these essentials in their store or delivered through their “On the Go” program. Like most anything, you need the right tools for the job. This is never more true than in impoverished classrooms, where education is yearning to happen.

Shape The Sky LLC

Shape the Sky’s mission is to create responsible kids on smartphones. To do this requires an authentic understanding of today’s youth culture and how they use their technology. It is then that the bridge can be built between the adult’s (parents, teachers, therapists, social workers, law enforcement) wisdom to the youth’s unique understanding of available technologies. Shape the Sky is led by licensed counselor Ryan Klingensmith who works directly with at-risk youth K-12 daily. His work with these youth keeps the information up-to-date and relevant to youth technology and mental health trends and needs. It is truly a brave new world with the existence of digital technologies and social media and we are just now seeing the first digitally native parents emerge. Shape the Sky provides a regularly updated hub of information for engaged adults to learn and guide their youth through these uncharted waters.
