A local contractor has given a helping hand to a family in need of repairs to the roof of their home.

A Facebook post began to circulate about an Alice family's need. According to sources, the roof of the family home would leak on rainy days.

After a few phone calls from concerned citizens, a local businessman Jesse Barrientes stepped up to help the family.

Barrientes is the owner of Jesse's Roofing and had his workers at the residence on Friday afternoon sealing the entire roof.

The entire work was done at no cost to the family who Barrientes has never met, but hopes to meet, Barrientes said. 

Barrientes  used his own materials to repair the roof.

A GoFundMe account has been set up for the family. To donate go to www.gofundme.com/heartnhome.
