Lancaster County World War II Era Veteran Receives New Walk-In Shower from West Shore Home®

West Shore Home®, one of the fastest growing home remodeling companies in the nation, is leading up to Veterans Day by providing deserving veterans with a new bath or shower. It’s part of its West Shore for Warriors initiative which is dedicated to serving U.S. veterans, active military members, and their families.

Donald Shank of Manheim, Pa. joined the Army in 1946 and served in Japan during its occupation by the United States. The 96-year-old is the first recipient of the company’s 2022 West Shore for Warriors bath installations.

West Shore Home removed Shank’s old cast iron tub and replaced it with a brand-new walk-in shower with grab bars and a teak shower seat for safety.

“I am proud to be chosen by West Shore Home for this special honor,” said Donald Shank. “This new shower will increase the value of our home and make a huge difference in our day-to-day life. The safety features will allow my wife and I to continue to live in our own home.”

The mission of West Shore for Warriors is to serve U.S. veterans, active military members, and their families. With its national footprint, West Shore Home is uniquely positioned to assist veterans in need.

“Part of our mission is to give back to our veterans who bravely served our country. Many suffered injuries during their service and a new bath or shower with enhanced safety features can make a tremendous difference,” said B.J. Werzyn, President and CEO, West Shore Home. “Through West Shore for Warriors we are proud to give back in such a meaningful way.”

West Shore Home specializes in window, door, and bath remodeling and replacement, with most projects completed in just one day. Its vision is to become America’s Most Admired Home Remodeling Brand®.
