Edward DeMars: “This is the great best thing that has happened to me since the birth of my sons!” Baths For The Brave 2022

NEWPRO Home Solutions Honors Two Local Veterans with Free Bathroom Makeovers in Recognition of Veterans Day for the Sixth Year in a Row 

Springfield, MA (October 19, 2022) – NEWPRO Home Solutions, a Renovo Home Partners company, and a third-generation, family-operated business located in greater New England, has awarded local veteran, Edward DeMars of Springfield with the gift of a brand-new bath system, free of charge.  

DeMars is a Vietnam and Gulf War veteran who proudly served in the US Army and US Air Force. Back surgery, knee replacements, and shoulder replacements have greatly impacted his mobility. The lip on his current bathtub makes it tough for DeMars and his three autistic sons to get in and out of the shower.   

NEWPRO will replace his existing shower and bath system with a new one that will be safer and more convenient for him to use.  

 DeMars was surprised with a check from Daniel Mocci, NEWPRO General Manager, to cover the cost of a full shower renovation.  

 I can’t believe this is happening,said Baths for the Brave recipient, Edward DeMars of Springfield. “I was going to take a loan out just to get my bathroom fixed, but this is great! This is the great best thing that has happened to me since the birth of my sons! 

Because he’s always taking care of us, I wanted to give him some sort of gift,” said Edward’s son, Joshua DeMars, who nominated his father for Baths for the Brave. “He’s always wanted a new shower or bathtub, so I figured I’d nominate him. 

Marci KatzThis is our 6th year partnering with the nation-wide veteran giving back program: Baths for The Brave. This year, we are providing a safe bathing environment for not one, but TWO veteran families! How exciting is that?” said Marci Katz, Vice President of NEWPRO. “No one should ever have to worry about bathing safely in their own home. We are honored to be able to continue to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country. Edward and NEWPRO’s other veteran recipient, Otis, will receive their FREE baths on November 10th – one day before Veterans Day. This special event truly embodies the core values on which the business was founded. It is one of our favorite NEWPRO Cares Initiatives,” said Katz.   


In honor of Veterans Day this year, the NEWPRO expert installation team will be crashing the bath of the selected veteran on November 10, 2022.

The Process  

Our team posted about the contest online and Marci Katz, Vice President of NEWPRO, went on live TV to share the details of our veteran bathroom giveaway. She encouraged all New Englanders to think of veterans’ worthy of nomination. We received hundreds entries and narrowed down the field based on stories and interviews from those who nominated them. Then, we selected two winners who met with a NEWPRO design specialist for consultation before we crash their old baths or showers and replace them with a free safe shower space. It is important for us to satisfy all homeowners’ mobility and safety needs.  

 The NEWPRO team would like to extend a special thanks to all the veterans in New England and around the country! Our participation in national events for veterans is just a small part of our community’s gratitude for your service and your sacrifices. We remain committed to continuing to give back as much as we can as part of the NEWPROcares giving back initiative. 

A special thank you to all who nominated veterans and sent us personal and touching stories.
