Officers Help, and Then Get Help

Local roofing contractor Roofing by Curry installed their new roof, and GAF donated all of the material as a thank you to Officers Wedin and Buckelew for protecting the community.

Officers Eric Wedin and Bonnie Buckelew are both police officers living in their dream home in Myakka City. They started a roof renovation themselves right before hurricane Irma came, when they were deployed to protect and serve their community during the hurricane and could not finish their roof. Bonnie spent 4 days away from her home rescuing those in need and serving in a shelter that was quickly becoming flooded. Officer Wedin wrote to GAF (pronounced G-A-F), America's largest roofing manufacturer, and received a phone call back from the company's president who donated a new roof.
