SACRAMENTO — National Guard Specialist Monika Pulido has a lot of jobs at work, making sure the jet fuel put in our military planes is the right quality.
At home, she is a single mother of three, juggling work, kids and home repairs, not to mention her recent deployment overseas.
“I was able to volunteer, to go on deployment, with the 48th CAB,” she said. “I was in Kuait. I was there for about eight months.”
When she returned home from her deployment, she found her roof was in shambles. There was a tarp keeping the rain water from pouring in.
Quotes she received placed the repair anywhere from $13,000 to $17,000 — money she simply didn’t have. That is when she applied for help through the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project. She was selected out of dozens of other families to receive this generous gift.
Owens Corning provided the material and Cal-Vintage Roofing provided the labor.
“A roofing project is a lot of money, so we wanted to help a family that is in need of a roof,” Michael Devaney, with Owens Corning, told FOX40.
“When we heard about the program we really got excited. We feel we need to give back to the men and women that serve in the military and this is a great way to show that we do care about our vets,” said Lisa Mazzuca Perry with Cal Vintage Roofing.
The roof deployment project helps military families all over the nation, they use local vendors to donate the labor, something specialist Pulido says is surreal.
“It still amazing to see there are still people out there supporting us,” said Pulido.
