2022 Shower for a Soldier goes to Air Force Veteran from Whitesboro
Tech Sergeant Michael Kingsley served his country for over 20 years. He entered the armed forces out of high school and spent most of his time overseas during the Vietnam War where he serviced airplanes used in Vietnam. After his military retirement, his health started to decline. Michael has had a total of two hip replacements with revisions and has difficulty getting around due to nerve damage in his legs. He also suffers from a-fib which causes him to have difficulty breathing.
But now, some good news as Michael had been named the 2022 recipient of the Shower for a Soldier bath Makeover Giveaway from New York Sash!
Started in 2020, the goal of Shower for a Soldier is to improve the life of a local Veteran experiencing hardships that hinder everyday tasks such as bathing. We are proud to announce Michael as our 2022 Shower for a Soldier recipient. Michael was nominated by his daughter, Megan and will be receiving a free bathroom upgrade from New York Sash.
“He has a hard time stepping over the lip of the bath tub, making it very hard for him to shower daily. A new bathroom, specifically a walk in shower would change his life. It will make his daily living safer, easier and happier.”
At New York Sash, it is our goal to serve our community and give back when we can. Shower for a Soldier is our way of enhancing the life of a local Veteran, someone who has already given so much for our country. We are proud to be able to offer this award to Michael.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project over the coming months!
