Now in its fifth year, Beacon of Hope, the program developed by Beacon Building Supply to provide roofing at no cost to military veterans in need, is seeking nominations for worthy individuals whose needs outstrip their financial wherewithal.
The program is open to all military veterans, honoring those who have gone above and beyond to serve. In an August 15 news release, Beacon said it and local roofing companies will deliver and facilitate a safe, durable roof for 10 winners at no cost to the recipients. The new roof will feature TRI-BUILT products, Beacon’s private label brand.
“In four years, Beacon has installed 42 roofs to secure veterans’ homes; working hand-in-hand with local community and industry partners, we take immense pride in contributing to the well-being of Veterans’ lives,” said Jonathan Bennett, Beacon’s chief commercial officer. “We created the Beacon of Hope program to express our appreciation for their service and ensure these Veterans have a safe place to call home.”
From now through October 6, 2023, the public can nominate a U.S. or Canadian veteran at the Beacon of Hope website or submit an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Nominations must include a photo and short bio of the veteran, including their military branch, years of service and why the nominee deserves a new roof.
All veterans are eligible. A panel will select 10 grand-prize winners and announce results on Friday, Nov. 10, the day before Americans celebrate Veteran’s Day.
