On Saturday, December 7 Iraq war veteran, Corporal Roy Bostic of Port Charlotte, Florida and his wife Nicole will be receiving a life-changing donation from Florida Southern Roofing.
After reviewing several nomination forms, Florida Southern Roofing has chosen its second Roofs for Heroes recipient, Corporal Roy Bostic of Port Charlotte, Florida.
Bostic served as an Army Motor Transport Operator in Tikrit, Iraq, where he encountered improvised explosive devices, rocket-propelled grenades, and horrible living conditions as he oversaw the safety of, not only the vehicles in the convoys he protected, but their cargo and passengers.
Upon his return, Roy purchased a small home and he has worked diligently to get ahead, but PTSD and the toll that 7 years in a warzone took on his body have made things difficult. Nevertheless, he managed to get new windows, a new air conditioning unit, and new electrical and plumbing for his home, but an unexpected expense in excess of $5,000 to repair the damage his teeth sustained while in Iraq meant that he would have to postpone the desperately needed roof replacement he was saving for.
Luckily, Susan Bostic, Roy’s mother heard of Florida Southern Roofing’s Roofs for Heroes program and submitted a nomination form that would lead to a well-deserved break for her son. As was the case in 2016, when Florida Southern Roofing rolled out the program, the team decided to get their business partners involved so Roy and Nicole will be getting much more than a new roof (see enclosure).
On Saturday, December 7, starting at 8:30 a.m., you will have the opportunity to witness a made-for-TV home makeover as Florida Southern Roofing and their partners in this endeavor converge at 21124 McGuire Ave Port Charlotte, the home of Roy and Nicole Bostic (list of partners & invitation enclosed).
Although the first two Roofs for Heroes recipients have been veterans, military service is not a requirement for consideration. If you or someone you know is a hero who is down on their luck and in need of a roof, please visit www.floridaroofing.com/roofs-for-heroes to fill out a nomination form.
