The 3,100 square foot St. Jude Dream Home, which will be auctioned as part of a fundraiser for the organization, will include 330 pieces of CertainTeed ProRoc(R) wallboard and feature approximately 60 squares of CertainTeed Landmark(TM) designer shingles. The donation is being made in conjunction with The Contractor Yard in Charleston, W. Va., who is assisting with the delivery of the materials.
