Webster-Cantrell Hall launches roof campaign

Webster-Cantrell Hall in Decatur launched a campaign Friday to replace its failing roof.

The child welfare agency provides community services and housing for children in need, but workers say the roof of their building on Cantrell Street in Decatur needs to be replaced.

“We do have leaks that have already started coming into the building,” said development director Holly Newbon. “After years of patchwork, it’s finally time to make the move.”

Newbon said the replacement is expected to cost more than $300,000, and she said the agency plans to raise that money through a campaign called “Raise the Roof.”

“We’re contacting local agencies, foundations, anyone that we can who is interested in making a donation toward our roof campaign.”
