Previously Homeless Veterans House
Wedge Roofing, recently honored as a “Hometown Hero” by Rebuilding Together, has donated a new roof to the Rocca House, a sober living for previously homeless veterans in Petaluma, CA.
With more than 10,000 veterans homeless in California alone, the North bay roofing company wanted to be part of the solution. In partnership with GAF and ABC Supply, WedgeRoofing provided the veterans with a GAF Timberline Shingle Roof free of charge as a token of thanks and in the spirit of community.
Donated Roof Saves Senior’s Home
When Phyllis, a 79-year-old disabled widow, saw the new shingle roof that Wedge Roofing had installed on her Petaluma home free of charge, she exclaimed, “I’ve heard people say that nobody cares anymore, but I am telling you, here is a whole group that will sure prove them wrong.”
Relying upon Social Security as her only income source, the long-time Petaluma resident was in danger of losing her home before Wedge Roofing and ABC Supply Santa Rosa working in conjunction with Rebuilding Together Petaluma came to her rescue.
“Free of charge, Wedge Roofing replaced a roof for an elderly, extremely low-income disabled widow who has lived in Petaluma for over thirty years. This kind of corporate generosity says a lot about the integrity of a business. Not only is their work flawless, their ethics are too.”Jane Hamilton, Executive Director Rebuilding Together Petaluma
