On Monday, Beacon (NASDAQ: BECN), Herndon, Virginia, announced the launch of its annual Beacon of Hope, which is a nationwide contest that awards deserving veterans new roofs.

For the third year in a row, as part of Beacon’s commitment to its communities, the contest is open to all military veterans that have received an honorable or general discharge. Together with local roofing companies, Beacon will deliver and facilitate roofing repair or replacement for six veteran contest winners at no cost to the recipient. Six second prize winners will receive $2,500 each to help complete the necessary repairs.

“We want to help our nation’s veterans who have given so much to our country,” said Jamie Samide, Beacon’s Vice President of Marketing. “The Beacon of Hope contest is just one way that we can provide support and ensure they are protected by a reliable roof. We encourage the public to honor veterans within their communities by nominating them for an opportunity to receive a new roof.”

From Aug. 16 through Sept.17, 2021, the public can nominate a U.S. Veteran at the Beacon of Hope website or submit an e-mail to Nominations must 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. Twelve finalists will be announced in October, and the public will have the opportunity to vote and determine the six winners.
