Arnolds Home Improvement and Owens Corning to provide free roof for Oregon veteran and family

One local man and his family is receiving an extra-large thank you on Veterans Day - a new, free roof. Local Korean War veteran Wayne McGee's family nominated him to Arnold's Home Improvement, and the local contracting company will install the new roof on Veterans Day.

Toledo, OH - October 31, 2016

One local man and his family is receiving an extra-large thank you on Veterans Day – a new, free roof.

Local Korean War veteran Wayne McGee’s family nominated him to Arnold's Home Improvement, and the local contracting company will install the new roof on Veterans Day.

As a way to show gratitude to the veterans and the soldiers who tirelessly serve our country and the families who support them, Owens Corning™ Roofing and its network of independent Platinum Preferred Contractors, along with support from the Owens Corning Foundation, developed the Roof Deployment Project earlier this year. Owens Corning will donate the materials and Arnold's will donate the labor.

This is the 19th free roof Owens Corning has provided to military families across the country since April, including builds in Texas, Florida, California, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Idaho, Colorado, Oregon, New Mexico and New York.

“Owens Corning is truly proud to give back to Mr. McGee, and his family through the Roof Deployment Project,” said Bill Mabry, Contractor Network Leader, Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt. “The sacrifices our Veterans have made for our freedoms are beyond what most of us can imagine. Being able to give something back, and partner with a company like Arnolds, is another way we are all saying thank you.”

“Mr. McGee was part of a fight to protect our freedom,” said Jason Arnold, owner of Arnold's Home Improvement. “Our company and Owens Corning both do a lot in our community to give back. We’re proud to work together on a day like this to make sure a deserving family has the safety and security of a quality roof over their heads.”

McGee was drafted into the United States Army in 1950. He did construction work, was a combat engineer and served as a demolition expert. He served with the 485th Combat Engineer Battalion, in occupied Germany. After the war, he worked and retired from Aklin Stamping after 29 years.

McGee’s home will also receive new gutters thanks to donations from Top Notch Gutters and ABC Supply.

Through the Roof Deployment Project, Owens Corning Roofing and its network of independent Platinum Preferred Contractors aim to lessen the stressors that can weigh hard on military families’ daily lives. With help from Arnold's and Support Our Troops®, a 501(c) (3) public purpose charity, McGee was selected.
