Here at Atlas Home Improvement, we’re so very thankful to the men and women who have served our country, putting their lives on the line so that we can have our freedom today. With this bathroom giveaway, we hope to honor the dedication and commitment of a retired military member while showing our appreciation for all that they have done for our country and our communities.
2022 Nominate a Veteran Bath Giveaway is NOW CLOSED! We are evaluating nominees & will report back.
Check out the video of Atlas Home Improvement owners David and Darian Bobby, with The Inside Outside Guys surprising the 2021 winner, Lamar Harrington.
Hear from Lamar’s daughter Kaycey about her experience throughout the contest:
“Atlas offered a contest to remodel a veteran’s bathroom in which I entered my disabled, Vietnam veteran and former Marine Corp League Commandant, father. Covid threw things off and the company very well could have scraped the project but in 2021 I found out my father won. I never really thought these things were real.
Vietnam was the turning point on how America viewed war and its veterans. Media, with it being the first broadcast war, opened a can of worms that had never been unleashed. Men who were formally met with glory came back to opposition and disrespect. Today we honor and glorify our service men and women but for Vietnam veterans and others after it wasn’t always that way. That is why the contest was so important to me.
I truly wanted my dad to get the appreciation for his sacrifice that he didn’t in his time and now, all these years later, is still suffering the aftermath of. Agent Orange plagued him as it did many others who fought. Today he is an amputee from its side effects. He has dialysis 3x a week. As the song says, “Oh I’ve been home 40 years or so but I’m still stepping off of the plane.” Darian and those at Atlas helped give my father those flowers. They had a little procession with media, flowers and balloons coming down the street to surprise my dad. He loved it!
I don’t know the value of the remodel but for FREE, they gave my father a jet powered tub, toilet with accessibility bars, a new sink, vanity, lighting and floor; THE WHOLE SHEBANG. In a time of profit and self these people took the time out to give back and we’re forever grateful. Darian and his veteran father came out and met with my dad. Travis, Dave Ford, Kevin Martin, Andrew Robinson, Henry Brewer and just everyone was so GREAT. Very personable, professional, polite and present. I absolute love their work and more than anything, their spirits.
These are GOOD PEOPLE. GOOD AMERICAN PEOPLE AND AN AMERICAN BUSINESS! God bless them and their business for generations to come.”
