NEWPRO Home Solutions to Honor Local Veteran with Free Roof Replacement
NEWPRO Home Solutions, a third-generation, family-operated home improvements provider will be awarding local veteran, Patricia Odom of Hyde Park, the gift of a new roof, free of charge. This is part of NEWPRO’s latest NEWPRO Cares giving-back initiative in partnership with roofing manufacturer, Owens Corning.
Patricia Odom was selected as our NEWPROcares recipient, after carefully reviewing dozens of nominations. Odom served in the US Army and the Massachusetts Army National Guard between 1976 and 1987. She achieved the rank of Sergeant First Class while serving in the Army, then went on to become the first female recruiter of color for the Massachusetts National Guard. Odom was honored by former governor Charlie Baker in 2022 for her service and accomplishments in the National Guard. Following her military career, Odom spent the next 20 years teaching special education in the Boston Public School System.
“I am so excited and so happy,” said Patricia Odom. “I’ve been wanting to put on a new roof for the past few years so to know that I have won this – it’s a miracle,” she continued. “Some things are worth waiting for!”
Odom is now retired. Her current roof has a few leaks in the ceiling that she worries about during rain or snow fall. This new roof will help keep her home safe and insulated while allowing her to enjoy retirement.
“At NEWPRO, giving back is a huge part of our culture,” said NEWPRO Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Marci Katz. “We’re excited to continue giving back via NEWPRO Cares to our local service members and veterans by gifting one with a brand-new roof for their home,” Katz continued. “We couldn’t think of a more deserving recipient than Patricia Odom.”
NEWPRO will be replacing Odom’s roof this summer, free of charge. It’s our way of saying “thank you for your service.”
