Beacon, the national distributor of roofing and building supplies, announced last week, in honor of Veteran’s Day, the winners of its annual Beacon of Hope program, which awards military veterans facing adversity across North America with new roofs.
In a Nov. 11 news release, the company said that, together with local roofing companies, Beacon will deliver and facilitate roof replacements for 10 Veteran homes or Veteran community buildings at no cost to the recipients.
In its fifth year, the company says Beacon of Hope reflects its core values “…of putting people first and doing the right thing.” Veterans and organization buildings whose roofs are in dire need of replacement are nominated for assistance by people throughout North America.
Beacon's statement went on to say it "...takes great pride in joining with community and roofing industry partners to help transform the lives of our selected Veterans as they regain confidence in the safety of their homes and can gather in Veteran community spaces such as the American Legion and VFW."
