In honor of Veteran’s Day, Home Roofing Solutions hosted their second annual Roof’s for Troops event to give back $10,000 in the form of a reimbursement for a roof installed in the past year for a veteran. The event was hosted by the Marino Project, an organization that was founded by members of Home Roofing Solutions, to honor their friend David Marino who is a marine. The owner of Home Roofing Solutions, Joe Brasslett told WABI News, “We wanted to build a program that could outright benefit our veterans in the state of Maine,” and continued, “These people were willing to give it their all day in day out when they were serving in combat. So, what we’re doing to me is much smaller than what they did. But it’s appreciated a great deal by them.”
The Marino Project was proud to use the Roofs for Troops event as a sort of stepping stone for the kind of work they would like to continue in the future. Co-Owner of Home Roofing Solutions, Joni Brasslett told WABI News,“This was our first big drawing and our first efforts in you know, really giving back in a significant way. And we’re just going to continue to grow and do more in the future.”
Although not all the veterans could walk away with that $10,000 reimbursement check, the event was still a fantastic opportunity for veterans to be brought together and interact, reminisce, and relate to one another. Brasslett added, “Being in a room full of veterans is a really incredible experience and one that we want to keep doing every single year.”
