My first thought is to contact Home for Humanity. This is the volunteer group that builds houses for folks that are needy. A lot of the materials they use are donated or given at very low cost. I would think their number would be in the phone book or maybe the city or town hall would be able to also be of help.
If you have a vocational school near by and they have a carpenters construction program maybe the instructor would have knowledge of where to obtain roofing shingles at no cost and maybe the students would volunteer to do the work for some sandwiches and cokes.
Also ask roofing contractors for any roofing materials they may have. Sometimes when they do a roofing job there are extra shingles left over they could contribute to your cause.
