Community Outreach

Bone Dry is all about the community and we give back every chance we get. We have invested a lot of time and money into helping our community, and moreover, the families within that community. We want all of our current and future customers to know that when they choose Bone-Dry, they are choosing a company who values the community and will do everything within its power to strengthen the communities that we serve, including but not limited to: Louisville, Elizabethtown, Bowling Green Area, Lexington Area and Southern Indiana.

Out of the DARKNESS

Community outreach and involvement has always been big for us here at Bone Dry Waterproofing, Inc. Continuing to help to better our city, and giving back will always be a priority for us, and something we very much look forward to. This year, Bone Dry proudly joined along with other businesses, in sponsoring the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s 2017 Out of the Darkness Walk here in Louisville. The number of participants overall was outstanding! People from different walks of life, all walking together to join the effort to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy, and support survivors of suicide loss, which is the 10th leading cause of death in the US. A few of our employees have been directly affected by suicide, so this year, like years passed, we walked in memory of their loved ones and to stand in support of the families left behind. Walking in memory of Kay Hamilton, the Bone Dry team, their family, and friends represented team Kay’s Cardinals. We can’t thank those who walked, donated or offered any support enough! If you would like to donate, join in a new event, or learn more about AFSP, visit their website at www.AFSP.org “The first step towards change, is awareness.

WLKY Bell Award

WLKY Bell Award.  The Bell Awards program recognizes individuals who have demonstrated the true “spirit of Louisville” through selfless volunteer efforts and seeks to inspire all residents to engage in community service.

From WLKY “Jim Clark has provided more than twenty projects for the Louisville Metro Police Department, renovating and refurbishing their K9 kennels and Mounted Patrol stables.  In a span of four years, it is estimated his donation of materials and labor has exceeded $200,000.  In addition, Mr. Clark made repairs at the Iroquois Park horse arena, allowing an equestrian program to operate during the summer months.  He’s a faithful volunteer for the Kentucky Humane Society and Operation Military Cheer, a holiday program for military families.”

The WLKY Bell Award recipients were honored at a banquet at the Galt House Hotel on Friday, October 9th.Read More.

Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Bone-Dry Waterproofing & Foundation Repair was invited to participate in the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition television program’s complete reconstruction of the Lampe’s Louisville home. This project was part of ABC’s popular Extreme Makeover Home Edition television program.

Our team spent over 360 hours helping transform this home in only one week. Bone-Dry Waterproofing provided foundation waterproofing, an EZ Breathe Ventilation System, Stucco on the foundation walls and a variety of concrete work. We were proud to be part of an amazing project where the entire Louisville community came together to provide a wonderful family with the new home they so desperately needed!

Louisville Metro Police Foundation

The Louisville Metro Police Foundation has a vision of a safer Louisville. When we found out there were police facilities in need of our services, we came to help. We made waterproofing repairs to the K9 kennels and Mounted Patrol Facilities ; installed gutters, painting, footing, and gravel in the stable pathway; enclosed the kennel runs; installed new doors; and installed an HVAS system with heating and cooling. We are proud that we were able to serve the LMPD by taking on this project, and we’re grateful for the relationships we’ve built along the way.

Spencer County Animal Shelter

Friends of Spencer County Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization that is committed to providing care and comfort to shelter animals who need help that might not otherwise get the life they deserve. Bone Dry got involved with the organization in 2017 and has since raised over $40,000 in donations to help make sure the shelters needs are fulfilled . We enjoy participating in their All About the Paws Holiday dinner and silent auction every year, an event that raises much needed funds for the shelter, but we are proudly year-round supporters of their cause and mission.

Kentucky Humane Society

Rising water levels and K9 kennels aren’t a good mix, but with a little foundation repair, we had the Kentucky Humane Society’s kennels back to a state of bone-dry perfection. We were also able to contribute basement waterproofing systems for the Humane Society’s Tuxes and Tails benefit, which resulted in over $155,000 raised for the animals in our community that need food, shelter, medical care, and a second chance at a happy life.

Brown County, IN Humane Society

Before Bone-Dry got there, the Humane Society of Brown County, Indiana was in need of some work. We donated $3,000 for them to put up a dog run, and we hauled in 80 tons of gravel for their supply barn. It’s important to us that animal care facilities and those who run them are properly equipped to carry out their operations, and we were glad to assist Brown County with our services.

4-H Club Riding Arena

When we learned that local 4-H club members didn’t have a place to ride horseback, we took to the task of preparing one for them. An event held at the site during the previous year made the job a difficult one, since there was more mud in the area than solid ground. But 4 million pounds of sand and gravel and an appearance from the mayor later, the project was complete with happy horses and happy kids.
