Walk through the doors of the Long Island State Veterans Home and you will meet a remarkable group of 350 men and women who sacrificed a part of their lives serving their country with dignity and pride. Their service, and unyielding commitment to honor, duty and country, paved the way for the freedom and prosperity each of us as Americans enjoys today.

We invite you to become a permanent part of the Long Island State Veterans Home's Walk of Heroes by purchasing a Benefactors Brick for a contribution of as little as $250. For a $1,100 donation, you , your family, or your organization can purchase a Commemorative Star which offers more prominent recognition for your contribution. Other giving opportunities are available for individuals, families and groups who wish to take advantage of special recognition opportunities. Please call 631-444-8615 for more information regarding special contribution levels.


"From the Greatest Generation to the Latest Generation"

Upon receipt of your donation a confirmation notice and letter of appreciation will be sent in acknowledgment. Bricks and Stars are personalized and placed in the walk one time each Spring and one time each Fall. Thank you for your support!
