Beacon of Hope

”The Beacon of Hope contest is one way we can give back to the men and women who have given so much to our country. Too many of our nation’s veterans are living under roofs in need of repair, often as a result of being on a fixed income. It is our privilege to give back to our veterans and their families.“
