Happy Fourth of July

Inkster veteran’s military 
service rewarded with new roof

Lloyd G. Lockett, a U.S. Army veteran, had a very special Fourth of July last week.
Inkster Mayor Patrick Wimberly and representatives from Habitat for Humanity visited his Sylvia Street home to help him celebrate a brand new roof being installed as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project. Owens Corning donated the roofing material which was installed by Tittle Brothers Construction, a local family owned business which donated the labor for the installation.

Through a partnership with Habitat for Humanity Western Wayne County, Lockett was selected and approved as the recipient for the roof replacement based on his military service.
The Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project is a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country and the families who support them. Since the inception of this program in 2016, more than 200 military members have received new roofs.
Workers began the job at 8 a.m. and completed the work the same day, just in time for Lockett and his family to celebrate the Fourth of July.
