HERNDON, Va. — On Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, Beacon announced the winners of its annual Beacon of Hope contest, a program awarding U.S. and Canadian Veterans with new roofs. Together with local roofing companies, Beacon will deliver and facilitate roof replacements for 10 veteran contest winners at no cost to the award recipients.
"Veterans are important members of our employee team and local communities, so it is our honor to support them beyond their years of service,” said Jonathan Bennett, chief commercial officer at Beacon. “The Beacon of Hope contest ensures they have a safe home secured by a reliable roof. To extend the impact of this program in the veteran community, we are also excited to be replacing the roof on an American Legion Post this year.”
Now in its fourth year, Beacon of Hope reflects Beacon’s values to put people first and make every day safer. Every year, people from across the U.S. and Canada come together to nominate veterans whose roofs are in dire need of replacement. Beacon takes pride in joining with community and roofing industry partners to help transform veterans’ lives as they regain confidence in the safety of their homes.
