Watkins Construction and Roofing of Jackson Mississippi joins with Owens Corning to donate free roof for United States Army Veteran.
JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI, UNITED STATES , February 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jackson Mississippi-based Watkins Construction & Roofing is giving back to the community by donating a free roof to United States Army Veteran Arthur Mikell. A resident of Jackson Mississippi, Michael said he was having to sleep in his den due to roof leaks in his old roof.
The philanthropic move comes as a part of the Owens Corning national project called Roof Deployment, which aims to help troop members and veterans in need. The Roof Deployment Project aims to inspire, activate and match its network of independent Platinum Preferred Roofing Contractors with military families around the country in order to provide them with new roofs.
"I have been very excited about being part of this project, we have really rallied together as a company, and it feels really good to be helping an Army Veteran," said Michael Dier of Watkins Construction and Roofing. The company wants to address the additional stressors and challenges that military families face on a day-to-day basis, which occur as a result of military life. Household responsibilities can be one of the main stressors, which is why roofs can fall into disrepair and cause issues for people living in these homes.
"The Roof Deployment Project will play a key role in bettering the lives of United States servicemen, women and their families," said Martin C. Boire, Executive Director of Support Our Troops®. "It's a great symbol of support here at home for those who protect our country on a daily basis."
