Many of you may remember our post a few weeks ago where Sergeant Brian Wessling helped fix the roof of an Olathe resident. Well today she is getting a whole new roof, thanks to the following companies- Gorilla Exteriors Contracting, LLC is coordinating the project and donated all the labor, Owens-Corning donated the shingles, and ABC Supply donated the accessories. Way to go above and beyond Sergeant Wessling!
