Through Habitat Partnership, Bloomington Veteran Receives New Roof Installed by RCV Roofing & Seamless Gutters
Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project Gives Back to U.S. Military Veterans
BLOOMINGTON, Ind., September 3, 2019 – Owens Corning Platinum Contractors are working with Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County to provide new roofs to veterans in need and their families as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project.
Veteran Scott Browning will receive a new roof on Thursday, September 12, from RCV Roofing & Seamless Gutters, an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Contractor. This nationwide effort is a way to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country and the families who support them. Since the inception of the Owens Corning National Roof Deployment Project in 2016, more than 140 military members have received new roofs.
“As a local and veteran owned company, we are grateful for this opportunity to give back to the Bloomington community and help one of our own,” said Jay Nelson, owner of RCV Roofing & Seamless Gutters. “Mr. Browning sacrificed so much for our country, and now is the time to display our appreciation for his service.”
Owens Corning Roofing and its network of independent Platinum Contractors, along with support from the Owens Corning Foundation, are donating roofing materials and labor to replace roofing shingles on the homes of military veterans and their families throughout the country. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County, Scott Browning was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement.
“It’s inspiring to know businesses like RCV Roofing are willing to donate their labor for such a heartening initiative,” said Nathan Ferreira, project supervisor at Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County. “Nothing makes us happier than seeing the community come together to support a veteran during a time of need.”
