HERNDON, Va. — In honor of Veterans Day, today, Beacon revealed the six grand prize winners of its annual Beacon of Hope, a nationwide contest awarding deserving veterans with new roofs.
For the third year in a row, as part of Beacon’s commitment to its communities, Beacon will deliver and facilitate roof replacement for the six veteran contest winners at no cost to the recipient. Additionally, six second prize winners will receive $2,500 each to put toward necessary repairs.
“Once again we received thousands of votes from people across the country, showing support for deserving veterans,” said Jonathan Bennett, Beacon chief commercial officer. “We created Beacon of Hope as part of our commitment to giving back to the men and women who have served to protect our country and our freedoms. We’re honored to do a small part in improving the lives of these veterans by awarding them with new roofs or the support needed to complete much needed repairs.”
Inspiring stories from the top 12 finalists were shared on the Beacon of Hope website for voters’ consideration. The 2021 Beacon of Hope Grand Prize winners are:
