Blue Goose Bands Together to Help a Veteran Get a New Roof!

When a Veteran in the community needs a roof… You get him a roof.

Mr. Frank Watkins and his wife Lou Etta, of Leesburg, will soon have a new roof and a freshly painted home – An unexpected outcome after Paul Davis Restoration contacted Mike Ball, Loudoun County Veteran Services Coordinator, this past December, to offer free outdoor holiday decorating for local veterans.

94 year-old Mr. Watkins served in World War II. Upon his separation from the service, he and his wife, Lou Etta raised their family in Leesburg. While appreciative of the holiday gesture, Mr. Watkins made it known that he desperately needed a new roof.

The roof inspection showed that, indeed, replacement was called for. Paul Davis Restoration and Loudoun County Veterans Services reached out to community members, leaders and businesses to seek donations.
Many thanks to Home Depot – for providing all paint supplies,The Roof Center for a partial donation of roofing supplies, Sterling Glass for their window repair Katchmark Construction, The Honorable Order of The Blue Goose, Loudoun Cares, and Loudoun County Veterans Services for donating labor. Special thanks to ERS, CORE and Ashburn Art for their financial contributions to this endeavor.

“We are thankful to Mr. Watkins for his service and recognize that The Greatest Generation sacrificed much. We are honored to play a role in helping to create a solution for the Watkins’ family home repair needs” said Co-Owner Kevin Sullivan of Paul Davis Restoration. “Community outreach is most gratifying when many hands come together – This has truly been a neighborhood effort”.
