“Veterans have given so much to protect us, so we must find ways to reciprocate with our unwavering support,” said Jonathan Bennett, Beacon’s Chief Commercial Officer. “The Beacon of Hope program is just one way we can give back to our Veterans who need assistance with a basic necessity -- a safe and secure home. We hope this initiative inspires others to support our heroes and become their ‘Beacon of Hope’.”

Now in its fifth year, Beacon of Hope reflects Beacon’s core values of putting people first and doing the right thing. Every year, people from across the U.S. and Canada come together to nominate Veterans whose roofs are in dire need of replacement. Beacon takes great pride in joining with community and roofing industry partners to help transform the lives of our selected Veterans as they regain confidence in the safety of their homes and can gather in Veteran community spaces such as the American Legion and VFW.
