Ypsilanti Veterans Receive New Roof Installed by Tittle Brothers Construction on Veterans Day
Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project Gives Back to U.S. Military Veterans
Ypsilanti, MI, November 11, 2017 – Owens Corning Platinum Contractors are working with Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley to provide new roofs to veterans in need and their families. James Lore, a United States Army veteran who served in Vietnam from 1969 until 1971, and his wife Jonnie, also a United States Army veteran, will receive a new roof on Veterans Day Saturday, November 11th, from Tittle Brothers Construction, a local Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Contractor, as part of the Owens Corning national Roof Deployment Project. This nationwide effort is a way to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country and the families who support them.
“We are a family owned and operated company with more than a decade of experience in the Southgate, Dearborn and Detroit metro region and this community is like family to us,” said Greg Tittle, Founder and Owner of Tittle Brothers Construction. “It’s an honor to know that we can help James and his wife, who is also a veteran, and make an impact right in our own backyard.”
Owens Corning Roofing and its network of independent Platinum Contractors, along with support from the Owens Corning Foundation, are donating roofing materials and labor to replace roofing shingles on the homes of military veterans and their families throughout the country. Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley, James and Jonnie Lore was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement.
“We are grateful for this partnership with Owens Corning and Tittle Brothers Construction,” said Heidi Frankenhauser, Home Improvement Program Manager, Habitat for Humanity of Huron Valley. “Collaborations like this help us serve more families and ensure decent, safe housing.”
