Roof Donation to a VFW - Image 1

Standing tall in Rocky Hill, CT is the VFW: Post 2138, a building that has housed and benefited veterans for many years. Located on Main Street, it has supported veterans all across Connecticut and is a landmark for visitors and tourists.

Through shared experiences and the “buddy-buddy” program, veterans are connected by speaking openly or privately about what troubles his or her daily life. The importance of support, whether verbally or physically, is a concept that the VFW does not take lightly. Being safe is not an option; it’s a necessity.

Safety is very important to Klaus Larsen, the owner of Klaus Larsen Roofing in Hebron, CT. Partnering with Klingberg Family Centers, he wants his customers to feel supported in every way possible. Having a roof over a family’s head that leaks or falls apart is a scary thought and Klaus does everything he can to prevent families from feeling hopeless. Klingberg supports the families by providing the tools to help form unity. It’s a partnership that keeps communities together.

The VFW: Post 2138 is the second recipient this year to receive a new roof. 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 VFW and Klingberg Family Centers. A large crowd and media presence is expected.
