Don Hawley of Stockbridge, Wisconsin is a Green Bay Packers fan- he is also a disabled Korean War veteran. As Don grew older, he began having problems getting in and out of his bathroom safely. When Tundraland Home Improvements heard about Don’s situation, there was no question that they had to do something.
As a company that is all about American-made products and providing jobs for veterans, Tundraland President Brian Gottlieb believes that it is his duty to give back to those who have served in the military. “It’s part of the culture of our company to wherever possible make a difference in someone’s life and we believe that if we can take part in changing the life of one person that we begin to change the world.”
In November an event was held at Tundraland’s Kaukauna showroom where four different Packers players were signing autographs for fans. One of the players was Green Bay Packers Wide-Receiver James Jones. Gottlieb called the Korean War veteran to surprise him with an autographed football but what came next was something that would change Don’s life. Hawley was put on the phone with James Jones who informed him that Tundraland would be doing a free Wisconsin bathroom remodel to make his bath accessible and safe. As tears rolled down Don’s face, he expressed his gratitude to the home remodeling company.
