Beacon 6 Veterans New Roofs Beacon of Hope

Roofing material and building products distributor Beacon (Nasdaq: BECN) on Thursday announced the winners of its 3rd annual Beacon of Hope contest, which rewards six veterans with new roofs.

Beacon said it will deliver and secure roof replacements for the six veteran contest winners at no cost to the recipients.

Six second-prize winners also will receive $2,500 each to put toward necessary repairs, the company said.

“Once again we received thousands of votes from people across the country, showing support for deserving Veterans,” Beacon CEO Jonathan Bennett said. “We created Beacon of Hope as part of our commitment to giving back to the men and women who have served to protect our country and our freedoms. We’re honored to do a small part in improving the lives of these Veterans by awarding them with new roofs or the support needed to complete much needed repairs.”

The new roof installations will be completed between November 2021 and spring 2022, Beacon said. IKO, a strategic manufacturing partner, is providing the roofing materials for each winner’s home.

Beacon’s 2021 winners are:

  • Alan D., Army National Guard veteran in Pennsylvania
  • Grailing C., Air Force veteran in Virginia
  • George A., Navy veteran in Maine
  • Jeremiah W., Army National Guard veteran in Oregon
  • John V., Army veteran in Pennsylvania
  • John M., Navy veteran in Texas

Each year, the public can nominate a U.S. Veteran at the Beacon of Hope website or submit an e-mail to beaconofhope@becn.com. Nominations include a photo and short bio of the veteran, which includes their military branch, years of service and why the nominee is deserving of a new roof. After finalists are announced, the public will have the opportunity to vote and determine the six winners.

Beacon is a publicly traded distributor of roofing materials and complementary building products in North America, operating over 400 branches throughout all 50 states in the U.S. and six provinces in Canada.
