Roofs for Troops Event Gives Back $10,000 to Lucky Veteran

Roofs for troops

Home Roofing Solutions entered all military veterans that were contracted with them in the last year in a drawing for a generous reimbursement.  

In honor of Veteran’s Day, Home Roofing Solutions of Orono, Maine, hosted their second annual Roof’s for Troops event to reimburse one lucky veteran  $10,000 for a roof they installed during 2022. The event was hosted by the Marino Project, an organization that was founded by members of Home Roofing Solutions, to honor their friend David Marino who enlisted in the Marines when he was 17.  

The owner of Home Roofing Solutions, Joe Brasslett told WABI News, “We wanted to build a program that could outright benefit our veterans in the state of Maine.” She continued, “These people were willing to give it their all, day in day out, when they were serving in combat. So, what we’re doing, to me, is much smaller than what they did. But it’s appreciated a great deal by them.” 

The Marino Project is proud to use the Roofs for Troops event as a stepping stone for the kind of work they would like to continue in the future. Co-owner of Home Roofing Solutions, Joni Brasslett shared “This was our first big drawing and our first efforts in  really giving back in a significant way. And we’re just going to continue to grow and do more in the future.”   

Although not all the veterans could walk away with a $10,000 reimbursement, the event was still a fantastic opportunity for veterans to come together and interact, reminisce and relate to one another. Joe added, “Being in a room full of veterans is a really incredible experience and one that we want to keep doing every single year.”
