Roofing project gives back to a Mason City veteran | Mason City & North Iowa


Giving back to those who have served.

That’s the idea behind the Roof Deployment Project, where Young Construction members did installation work Wednesday morning in Mason City for former US Marine Corps member and behavioral interventionist for the Mason City Community School District, Jeremy DeBattista. He was nominated by his sister December Battista.

According to Kativa Weitzel, a marketing manager for Young Construction, the company, which has worked with Owens Corning and Purple Heart Homes, combed 50 nominations for the free labor before landing on DeBattista.

“Every story, we howl reading apps,” she said.
