The deadline for nominations in Sterling-based DryHome Roofing and Siding’s Free Roof for the Holidays program is Dec. 1.

This will be the 13th year the company has provided a new roof for a Northern Virginia-based individual, family or nonprofit.

Last year, DryHome awarded a roof to Cornerstones, a nonprofit that works to alleviate homelessness, ensuring one of its houses was ready to become a home for a single mother and her 8 year old child. Other recipients have included: Leesburg’s Janice Coe, a social worker and tireless advocate for the homeless; Leesburg widow Ann Harris; Doorways for Women and Families’ Safehouse; Leesburg resident Barbara Green, a widow and school bus driver; veteran Hubert Laconia; Good Shepherd Alliance, a nonprofit serving Loudoun’s homeless, Falls Church Cub Scout House; Gabriel Homes, a nonprofit serving adults with developmental disabilities; Mrs. Caylor, a Leesburg resident and volunteer; and Bernie Cline, an elderly Alexandria resident.
