West Shore Home® Wins 2023 Mid-Atlantic Emmy Award for World War II Veteran Story

Mechanicsburg, Pa. – West Shore Home®, one of the fastest growing home remodeling companies in the nation, is proud to announce it has won a 2023 Mid-Atlantic Regional Emmy Award by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

The team of Kirsten Page (Producer), John MacDonald (Editor), and Neil Muro (Cinematographer) were nominated for their story of World War ll veteran Donald Shank as part of the company’s West Shore For Warriors™ initiative.

Shank, who is from Manheim, Pa., was drafted into the Army right out of high school in 1946. He served in Japan during its occupation by the United States and was honorably discharged in 1947 for medical reasons. Shank relived his service with the West Shore Home team, including how he helped a barefoot Japanese boy buy a desperately needed pair of shoes.

Much like he helped that young boy, West Shore Home was honored to help Shank. In 2022, Shank, who is now 97 years old, was selected to receive a new, walk-in shower through West Shore for Warriors™.

The company donated and installed the shower equipped with enhanced-safety features like grab bars and a teak shower seat to help Shank bathe without the fear of falling.

The mission of West Shore for Warriors™ is to honor U.S. veterans, active military members, and their families. The center of the initiative is its bath installs where select veterans are gifted a free shower with increased safety elements to help improve their daily life.

West Shore Home received the Emmy under the category of Branded Content, which highlights “excellence in a complete, stand-alone, video or video series produced with the intention of connecting or engaging an audience with an organization’s brand,” according to the Academy.

It is West Shore Home’s first-ever Emmy award. For more West Shore for Warriors™ stories, click here.
