Troops receive aid from leading construction company

Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) May 05, 2016

Venture Construction Group is pleased to participate in Owens Corning’s new Roof Deployment Project. The program is open to Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractors who express interest in donating crews, labor and services to help a military family in need. The Owens Corning National Roof Deployment Project launched in March in partnership with Support Our Troops, a 501(c)(3) public purpose charity devoted to increasing the wellbeing of American soldiers and their families. The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is an ongoing project open to over 300 Platinum Preferred contractors that are part of Owens Corning’s nationwide network.

“What makes the Roof Deployment Project unique and special is that it is very human in scale, and that’s a core value at Owens Corning. It’s one contractor per one family, multiplied many times over. Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractors like Venture Construction Group represent one percent of all contractors in the U.S., and I think we should have only the very best giving back to the men and women that defend our country every day,” says Bill Mabry, Contractor Network Leader at Owens Corning.

Support Our Troops’ programs annually provide millions of dollars worth of goods and services including family assistance, kid’s camp assistance, positive public support and more at hundreds of
locations around the globe.

“Support our Troops is America's military charity. We function as the bridge between the people and the troops. Owens Corning started the project with the idea that we can help by stepping up for America’s military the way they stepped up for all of us,” says Martin C. Boire, CEO at Support Our Troops.

“Over 90% of today’s Americans have never served in the military. I believe widespread civilian support is essential to the morale and well-being of our American troops and their families. Support Our Troops is the means of meeting our basic moral obligation of stepping up for those who preserve our liberties, livelihoods, and businesses. Consider this: Your neighbor goes off to protect your family. Morally, what should you do for him? For her? How? Support Our Troops provides simple, easy ways for individuals, community groups and businesses to make a difference through a variety of meaningful, substantive programs and services.”

As an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractor, Venture Construction Group will provide a new roof to a military family in need. Support Our Troops is in the process of identifying military families in need of roof repairs and replacements.

“Every little bit helps if we all do our part. We believe it’s imperative to give back to our active duty military and their families for the tremendous sacrifices they make on a daily basis,” says Stephen Shanton, CEO of Venture Construction Group.

In addition to providing construction, renovation and restoration services nationwide, Venture Construction Group helps property owners recover quickly after storm events such as hail, tornadoes, hurricanes, wind, fire and flood. Giving back to philanthropic charities and helping others is an integral part of the company’s mission.
