Malarkey Roofing Products is an active part of the community. With manufacturing facilities in Portland, Oklahoma City and South Gate, Malarkey seeks to make a positive impact by creating employment opportunities and supporting valuable community programs. Through material donations, financial gifts, and employee engagement, the company is aligned with need-based building projects, food and medical issues that effect our communities. Learn more about these programs below:
Habitat for Humanity
As a building materials manufacturer, providing contributions to Habitat for Humanity at all our plant locations, is a natural fit. Each year, Malarkey contributes to a variety of charities across the United States to provide safe homes and help children in need. We gladly contribute to Habitat through our plant locations:
• Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity donates over 40 homes a year.
• Portland/Metro East donates an average of 25 home a year.
Notable Habitat Donations:
• Los Angeles Magnolia Avenue Dedication (2015)
• Glisan Gardens (25 homes) (2015) Portland Metro
• Helensview (21 homes) (2016) Portland Metro
Former President Michael Malarkey was a generous personality and held a long tradition of family-style cookouts for employees and visitors to the manufacturing facility. This continued tradition inspired us to choose two hunger-relief organizations that provide meals in communities across the United States. Since 2016, the company has raised thousands of dollars in support.
• No Kid Hungry
No Kid Hungry is a nonprofit organization working to ensure children in the United States have access to healthy food where they live, where they learn, and where they play.
• Feeding America
Feeding America is a nationwide nonprofit network of food banks that serves virtually every community in the United States through food pantries and meal programs.
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers across the world, representing one in four of all cancers in women. This disease impacts everyone in our communities, but research is bringing us closer to a cure. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to preventing and curing breast cancer by advancing the world’s most promising research. Malarkey’s support of this foundation, in less than two years, has exceeded several thousand dollars.
Leukemia Lymphoma Society
Members of the Malarkey team in Portland, Oregon are active with the Leukemia Lymphoma Society. For several years, many employees have participated in the LLS ‘Light up the Night’ walk to raise funds for disease research, prevention and cures. Combined, employee efforts have raised over $13,000 for this cause.
Additionally, Malarkey has also continually shown a commitment to supporting local communities.
South Gate Courthouse - California (2014)
In 2003, Malarkey Roofing Products became a part of the South Gate, Ca. community when we established a production city there. In 2014, when the City was undergoing a reroofing project to the courthouse, Malarkey furnished high quality roofing materials. Some of these materials included products which meet industry leading energy conservation standards such as ENERGY STAR, California Energy Code Title 24, Part 6, and help the building qualify for LEED credits. According to the mayoral proclamation, “the South Gate Courthouse Roofing Project was constructed by the City and would not have been possible without Malarkey Roofing Products’ donation.”
Wat Xao Phout Lao Buddhist Center Northwest - Gresham, Oregon (2015)
The Lao Buddhist Center Northwest (LBCN) is a religious, educational and public non-profit organization that also serves as an umbrella for Wat Xao Phout Lao (the Temple) and Lao Community Center, serves the religious and social needs of the Oregon and Washington Lao Buddhist Community. It is also a community center for mutual support and sharing among all Buddhist followers. The center’s main building is more than 20 years old and among other functions, serves primarily as a sanctuary and living quarters for resident monks. Faced with an urgent need to replace a deteriorating, leaky roof, Malarkey donated underlayment, laminate shingles and ridge materials to protect the structure and keep it dry.
Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) Coastal Discovery Center - Newport, Oregon (2017)
The OMSI Coastal Discovery Center at Camp Gray was designed for Oregon’s next generation of explorers, teachers, and innovators. Designed to build 21st century skills and open doors to future careers. And most importantly, designed to get them outside. Malarkey donated the roofing materials for the cabins and dining hall.
