As we enter the Christmas season, we at Lon Smith Roofing want to remind all our friends and customers to think about those who might be struggling during the Holidays. People who are alone…people who are sick…people looking for work. Take a moment and offer a kind word to people you know who may be struggling.
And for us at Lon Smith, that means continuing to reach out to our veterans. During the last two years, we have been honored to present free roof installations to eight heroes who served in the military but could not afford a roof on their own. It’s a small way to honor the big sacrifice made by our heroes.
But this year we have taken our support for veterans to another level by partnering with the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Military Service Initiative. This program offers help and hope to veterans who are re-entering the workplace.
Maybe the best thing you can do to help out is to learn more about the challenges facing our veterans. Take a look at the Bush website and in particular take a look at the Veteran Employment Transition Roadmap:
Learn more about what it’s like to be a veteran returning to the workforce. And look for ways you can help.
