Big donation to local veteran

Posted: Updated:

 

A veteran or the family of a  veteran who can not afford to fix their roofs after the recent hail storm, may be able to get a new one for free. 

The owner of H&W Construction says he wants to donate a new roof to one veteran because he himself was in the military for several years and wants to give back to the community.

H&W Construction will be making this large donation because the owner, Jonathan Wilson, says he and his wife want to give back as they were both a part of our country's military. 

Wilson says they want to help out military families in the area who can not afford to fix damage caused to their home during May's hail storm. And he thought this would be the perfect opportunity to give back. 

Wilson says, ""We were in Iraq in the medical side of things. And we've seen a lot of casualties come through, and seen how that impacted families. So it's important to us, and it's a special part of our lives. And we want to be able to impact those families in some way."

Homeowners who meet the criteria can submit their stories by the end of July. One family will be selected to receive a new roof.  

Beginning July 4th, homeowners who meet the criteria are encouraged to submit their stories with the following information:

 name
  address of home needing roof
  phone number 
  email address, if possible
  name of your veteran and the approximate dates of service
