TAMPA, Fla. — A Tampa veteran has a new roof over his head thanks to a grant from a local construction company.

Rebuilding Together Tampa Bay and Kennedy Roofing partnered up Friday morning to gift U.S. Army veteran Charles Robinson his new roof.

The kind gesture is part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project, a nationwide effort to honor vets and their families.

Since the project's inception in 2016, more than 275 military members have received new roofs.
