Levittown, New York, November 2, 2016– A local Levittown military family will receive a new roof from Unified Window Systems, Inc., an Owens Corning™ Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractor, as a part of Owens Corning’s national Roof Deployment Project.
As a way to show gratitude to the soldiers who tirelessly serve our country and the families who support them, Owens Corning™ Roofing and their network of independent Platinum Preferred Contractors, along with support from the Owens Corning Foundation, are donating roofing materials and labor to build brand new roofs for military families around the country. The next stop on the list is Levittown, New York on November 10th to install a new roof for Sergeant Anthony J. Wevers, a member of the 42nd Infantry Division Band for the last 16 years.
“Owens Corning is truly proud to give back to Sergeant Wevers, his family and the military community through the Roof Deployment Project,” said Bill Mabry, Contractor Network Leader, Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt. “Many military families face added stress having a loved one away from home and Owens Corning’s and our network of Platinum Preferred Contractors are stepping up to help these families.”
In his 16 years of service, Sergeant Wevers was part of the Division that deployed and proudly served in Operation Iraqi Freedom III (OIF III).
“Sergeant Wevers is an inspiration to us all and we’re excited to honor him and his family the best way we know how – by installing a free, new roof,” said Steven J. DiMare, CEO of Unified Window Systems, Inc. “There’s a great history here in Levittown with the military community and we’re proud to be here today supporting one of our local veterans right in time for Veteran’s Day.”
Levittown gets its name from its builder, the firm of Levitt & Sons, Inc. founded by Abraham Levitt in 1929, which built the district as a planned community between 1947 and 1951.
Levittown was the first truly mass-produced suburb and is widely regarded as the archetype for postwar suburbs throughout the country as it catered well to returning GIs and their young families.
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 Support Our Troops®, a 501(c)(3) public purpose charity, Sergeant Wevers was selected. Owens Corning plans to conduct many more builds this year and beyond.
“Support Our Troops is very proud and grateful to be working with Owens Corning on the Roof Deployment Project,” said Martin C. Boire, Executive Director of Support Our Troops®. “We couldn’t think of anyone better than Sergeant Wevers to be the recipient for a new roof.”
Founded in the late 1980’s, Unified Window Systems, Inc. now supply’s and install’s windows, doors, siding and roofing to the New York Metro area with six showrooms in Hempstead Village, Huntington, Patchogue, Westchester, Brooklyn, and Queens.
