Please Help Mr. Hamrick

October 17th, 2017

Charles Hamrick and family

UPDATED: Voting is going well but not nearly good enough. YOUR HELP is needed until the vote ends in early November.

Charles Hamrick is a Korean War Veteran who was a member of the Marines’ Elite Special Ops force. His wife Joann has been suffering for the past five years from a severe progressive neurological condition that leaves her requiring constant care. Mr. & Mrs Hamrick have been married 56 years and survive on a small pension and Social Security.

Charles and his son provide Joann’s care — at home — with extremely little outside assistance.

Sadly, their roof fell apart and they can’t afford to fix it. A neighbor paid to remove raccoons from the home recently, and to clean up water damage and provide a very temporary fix.

The good news is the Hamricks are a finalist for a donated roof courtesy of Roofing By Curry in Sarasota, as part of a program to help the needy. But to get the free roof, they need the most votes.


Please help! Thank you!

    Voted, man I read the other finalist’s stories and all could use help. I hope our “Semper Fi” man, his wife and son get this roof and I also hope that the publicity will help some of the other families as they could use help but my vote went for the Hamricks. Great idea from Roofing by Curry. Glad I could help!
