Owens Corning & Westfall Roofing Team up with Habitat Hillsborough to Help a Local Veteran Family through Operation Code Vet
Westfall Roofing, a family owned and operated business, has served the Tampa community since 1989. So, when the opportunity to provide an Owens Corning roof for a local veteran presented itself, Westfall Roofing did not hesitate in saying “yes.” The non-profit program, Operation Code Vet, has helped hundreds of low-income veteran homeowners with code violations obtain solutions through the assistance of partnering agencies such as Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County’s Home Preservation Program (HPP.)
Habitat for Humanity’s mission is to provide safe, decent and affordable housing through collaboration, partnership, and community participation. Thousands of volunteers help build and rehab homes every year and corporate friends and organizations provide building materials and help fund programs.
Leveraging Teamwork to Make a Difference
After a materials grant was approved by Owens Corning to provide the resources needed for a new roof, they called Westfall Roofing. As one of Owens Corning independent preferred Tampa Bay roofing companies, Westfall jumped at the chance to replace the roof and support their local community.
“Westfall Roofing is a family-run business and we’ve always considered members of our local community like family as well,” said Kirk Westfall. “That’s why we jumped at the opportunity to help the Bryans.”
Westfall Roofing is grateful to be able to help the Bryans thanks to the collaborative effort from Owens Corning and Habitat Hillsborough.
“We couldn’t be happier to see the Bryans get the help they needed to replace their roof,” said Jeremy Cooke, of Habitat for Humanity of Hillsborough County’s Home Preservation Program (HPP). “This is a huge burden for this family and we couldn’t do it without caring partners like Owens Corning and Westfall Roofing.”
