Since its start in 1980, Zenith has teamed up with several great causes and groups to make a difference. For over 40 years, Zenith has been a steward of addressing community needs.
Zenith helps to sponsor at least 14 golf tournaments and events every year for various associations. Each one of these associations supports worthy causes, and to show our dedication, Zenith staff serve on several association committees to ensure we’re doing all we can.
Zenith Roofing’s sister company, Christmas By Zenith (CBZ), has become one of the premier commercial Christmas decorating companies in the Southwest. The business was started to assure steady work for Zenith employees during the winter season. A heartfelt charity to the Zenith family is the Ronald McDonald House. CBZ has decorated the Fort Worth house for over twenty years and plans to carry on this special tradition indefinitely.
For many years, Christmas By Zenith produced one of the largest Christmas events in Texas, the Gift of Lights at the Texas Motor Speedway. The proceeds from the event are used to assist the Ronald McDonald House, Toys for Tots, Boy Scouts of America, a Wish with Wings and Speedway Charities.
Every year Fort Worth has the Parade of Lights to kick off the holiday season. CBZ teams up with Wish With Wings to enter a float each year in the parade, we were very excited to find out that in 2017 our team won best overall float.
Another way Zenith gives back to our community is the Bolt Street Gym. The Bolt Street Gym is located at our facility and considered a serious old school gym. It is 8,500 square feet and has several full-time trainers, locker rooms, kitchen, showers, a cardio area, with over 100 pieces of equipment. It is a very popular location for friends, policemen and local athletes to utilize free of charge. If you pull up to our building and there are a dozen squad cars, don’t be alarmed, they are just working out. The average day has over 75 officers there training.
We are very proud of our Fort Worth Police Department Powerlifting Team that started in 2015 with a handful of officers to one of the largest police sports team in the nation (over 32 members). Let us take a minute to brag a little about our men and women in blue. For five years running the FWPD has won the State Police Olympic Games. Additionally, every two years there is the Police and Fire World Games. In 2017 (Los Angeles) and 2019 (China) FWPD took home more medals than any other team in the world!
FORT WORTH HAS THE STRONGEST POLICE FORCE IN THE WORLD AND THEY PROVED IT!
2019 Fort Worth Business Press’ Most Charitable Philanthropist was awarded to Allan for his continued support of the Fort Worth Police Department.
One of the biggest highlights is the commissioning of the Bronze FWPD K9 statue to honor all K9 officers and their brave dogs who have served with the police department. It is on view in the K9 Cemetery, located at the Bob Bolen Public Safety Complex, 505 W. Felix St.
The president of Zenith, Allan Rodger, has had a lifetime passion for amateur wrestling and martial arts. Over the years, he has volunteered as a wrestling coach for several high schools, was the State Director for Amateur Wrestling in Texas, and has trained many mixed martial artists and police officers.
