Back for a Second Year, One Local Veteran Will Receive Free Bathroom Makeover


(Whitesboro, NY) – Central New York home improvement company New York Sash is proud to announce the return of the Shower for a Soldier Bath Makeover Giveaway to benefit one Veteran with a free bathroom makeover.  The company is seeking the public’s help in nominating a deserving local Veteran.


The goal of Shower for a Soldier is to improve the life of a Veteran experiencing hardships that hinder everyday tasks such as bathing. As our thank you for their service, one nominee will be selected to have a new tub or shower installed in their bathroom by New York Sash.

Last year’s recipient of the Shower for a Soldier Bath Makeover was US Marine Corps Veteran Lee Watkins of Ilion, NY. Watkins was nominated by his wife, Nancy and received a tub-to-shower conversion by New York Sash to make stepping into the shower easier.

“We are proud and honored to be bringing back our Shower for a Soldier Giveaway for a second year.  At New York Sash this is one of the ways that we can give back to the men and women of the Armed Forces who have sacrificed and given so much for us and our country,” said New York Sash owner Scot Hayes. “After seeing the positive effect this giveaway had on last year’s recipient Mr. Watkins, we knew this is something that we want to continue doing for Veterans in our community,” Hayes continued.

New York Sash will be accepting nominations of deserving Veterans until November 1st, 2021. The winner will be announced on Veteran’s Day.
