Philadelphia Veteran Gifted New Shower in Honor of Veterans Day

Annual Baths for the Brave initiative aims to improve the lives of our nation’s veterans


Oct. 19, 2021 – Mechanicsburg, Pa. – West Shore Home, the fastest growing home remodeling company in the United States, is marking Veterans Day by providing new showers or baths to deserving veterans nationwide. In the Philadelphia region, U.S. Army veteran Darwoosh Ivanoff of Norristown is the recipient of one of 2021’s Baths for the Brave.

Baths for the Brave is a partnership among multiple home improvement companies nationwide. The goal is to improve the lives of veterans who are disabled or have experienced hardships that prevent them from completing everyday tasks such as bathing.

“West Shore Home is proud to be a part of Baths for the Brave year after year,” said B.J. Werzyn, President, CEO and Founder, West Shore Home. “We are committed to serving our nation’s veterans, not only through outreach programs, but through veteran hiring and training in all of our markets nationwide.”

West Shore Home removed Ivanoff’s old cast iron tub and replaced it with a brand-new walk-in shower.

“As with any service member, I didn’t serve for fame or fortune, but for the love of my country,” said Ivanoff. “When our country gives back, like West Shore Home has done for me, we feel the love.”

Ivanoff served from 1982 to 1994. He was a witness to history when the Berlin Wall came down, reuniting East and West Germany.

“It was amazing how people used sledgehammers or any type of device to break through the wall. As it crumbled down, families were reunited after years of being apart. For the people of Communist East Berlin to be free again was a joyful sight.”

West Shore Home specializes in window, door, and bath remodeling and replacement, with most projects completed in just one day. With a goal of Bringing Happiness to Every Home, its proven customer-focused business model is propelling West Shore Home’s growth.

Founded in 2006, it operates in 12 states, including Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
