Baths for the Brave is a partnership between 10 home improvement companies from across the United States that have banned together to give back to those who’ve sacrificed so much for us – our veterans. Our goal is to improve the lives of veterans in meaningful ways to say thank you for your service.
On Wednesday, Nov. 11th home improvement companies spanning coast to coast will remodel a bath or shower for a deserving veteran in just one day. The new bath or shower will provide a higher quality of life for the deserving veteran by giving them the gift of independence.
10 like-minded home improvement companies, all using American-made products, are joining forces to thank the brave service men and women in a day of unity by participating in an event called Baths for the Brave. Click below to see which company is changing the life of a veteran near you.
As an organization consisting of mostly small, family-owned-and-operated home improvement companies, we understand the value of service. For us, success means creating a quality product and providing friendly service to keep our customers coming back.
This time we wanted to take that level of service up a notch by providing that same high standard of quality and service to those who’ve put their lives on the line in service to this country. That is why on Friday, Nov. 6th companies are uniting across the U.S. to say thank you to our veterans by providing a new shower to them, free of cost, to help make their lives a little easier.
