Giving Back: One Roof at a Time!

Monday, April 16th, 2018 by Victoria Cosma

Giving back to the community is something that Klaus Larsen holds very close to his heart. It is our privilege to announce that we will be donating two brand new roofs this year. The first one being for a Veteran family in West Hartford, CT on April 17th, 2018. The second roof is for the VFW in Rocky Hill and that project will begin in June of 2019. Klingberg Family Centers, whom we have partnered with was able to connect us with the veteran family as well as, the VFW. We are looking forward to helping veterans in need and we welcome anyone to join in our mission. 

A Veteran in West Hartford is the first recipient of a donated roof. Living with his two children and wife in a ranch-style home, Brian works for a solar company and is a dedicated, family oriented man. When a few members of the Klaus Larsen team went to meet him for the first time at his home, he was very friendly and appreciative of what was being done for him. Luna Pizza in West Hartford will be donating food to the crews and Brian’s family. Watch the process unfold on Tuesday, April 17, via social media and the local news, as we install a brand new roof!

The VFW: Post 2138 on Main Street in Rocky Hill is the second recipient of a new roof. This building is a safe place for veterans to eat, play, and mingle with others. For many years, it has been a privilege to be available for these veterans that walk the halls and we are very honored to be a part of this standing legacy. On June 23, the Klaus Larsen team will arrive and begin installing the new roof. This is an open event to the public and we would love to have people come out to support this amazing cause. A fundraiser will be held to benefit both the veterans and Klingberg Family Centers. A large crowd and media presence is expected. This will be a time when the true light of kindness shows.

When able, events like these are a reminder of how important it is for everyone to live under a safe roof. Veterans and their families sacrifice so much and supporting them and their roof is what Klaus Larsen Roofing is all about.
