The bathroom was donated to the One Stop by Re-Bath.

The $25,000.00 bathroom includes all the usual fixtures and a washer and dryer.

Re-Bath owner Marcos Fernandez said he wanted the veterans to feel like there were at their own homes.

“As an immigrant I have a special appreciation for this country for the veterans and who they have sacrificed,” Fernandez said.

The addition also includes an executive closet stocked with clothing for veterans making the transition to civilian life.

“We want to put them and restore them back to the place that they were in and in the respect that they deserve,” One Stop Program Director Delisa Russell said.

The One Stop is looking for clothing donations for the executive closet.
