ABC Supply Co. Inc. Sponsors Home Remodel of Marine Corps Veteran
Company donates materials, volunteers assistance as part of “Military Makeover” TV show
BELOIT, Wis. — August 19, 2020 — A commitment to American veterans is deeply embedded into the culture of ABC Supply Co. Inc., one of America’s largest wholesale distributors of roofing, siding and other select exterior building products. That’s why the company has partnered with “Military Makeover,” a TV show that provides free home remodels to deserving veterans and their families. The season premieres August 21 and will feature a home remodel for Marcelino Marquez and his family. This is the second family that ABC Supply has supported through “Military Makeover” in 2020.
Marquez served in the Marine Corps for 27 years. During that time, he ultimately achieved the highest rank an enlisted Marine can achieve in the Marine Corps and Marine Reserves: Chief Warrant Officer 3. The Marine Corps provided a newfound acceptance and bond that Marquez brought with him through tours in Okinawa, Iraq, Afghanistan and others. Marquez then transitioned into mortuary affairs, where the Marine creed “No One Left Behind” became his central focus.
Marquez now resides near Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife Francis, their three children (Jacob, Isabella and Maya), their dog Rex and parakeet Perry.
“Marcelino’s strength and bravery during his time serving the Marine Corps is an incredible inspiration,” said Mike Jost, COO of ABC Supply. “We’re proud to have the opportunity to thank him for his service, and to be able to help his family remodel their home.”
ABC Supply was instrumental in the renovation of the Marquez family home, donating new gutters and exterior doors. Norandex donated the siding and windows. ABC Supply’s customers volunteered their time to install the donated materials.
To further the effects of their American Pride Core Value, ABC Supply has also committed to employing veterans, hiring over 1,100 veterans since 2017.
The Marquez family’s “Military Makeover” season airs on Lifetime network. The episodes will also be available to watch at https://militarymakeover.tv/.
