Local businesses want nominations to give Western New York veteran free room makeover

Nominations are accepted through November 5. A winner will be announced on Veteran's Day.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — If you're a veteran or know a veteran who needs some home remodeling work done, now is your chance to nominate them for a free room makeover. 

Pat Williams owns a contracting company called Decked Out WNY. He decided to give back in a unique way this year by partnering with four local businesses to help remodel a room for one lucky veteran. 

Those businesses are Sherwin Williams, SchafferMade Carpentry, Len Co Lumber, and local artist Ashley Kay.

Nominations are due by Nov. 5 and a winner will be announced on Nov. 11.

"It's an underserved population across the country. I think the dedication and service they've given is far beyond what we give them recognition for," said Kevin Coppola, co-owner of Len Co Lumber. 

"I probably will end up tearing up when I see whoever is chosen and their reaction," Williams said.

You can submit a nomination at the Len Co Lumber location in Williamsville or you can do it on Decked Out WNY's Facebook page here
