NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - A local veteran in need just got the surprise of a lifetime.
In a surprise event on Monday, Norman Hooper, a U.S. Army veteran, learned that he is getting a new roof from Colony Roofing, an Owens Corning Platinum Roofing Contractor, as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project. The new roof will be installed within weeks after the surprise announcement.
Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Peninsula and Greater Williamsburg, Hooper was selected and approved as the recipient for the new roof.
“It is our pleasure to donate a day of labor to a veteran who has dedicated so much of his life to serving our country,” said Herb Paynter Jr., President of Colony Roofing. “Mr. Hooper’s new roof will provide him with the safety and security he deserves.”
The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country and the families who support them. Since the program began in 2016, more than 190 military members have received new roofs.
