Paraco Pays Tribute to our American Heroes by Showing its Appreciation on Veterans Day on Long Island!

November 10, 2021

Paraco hosted a special Veterans Day breakfast to honor its own!
Paraco’s Long Island Manager, Bob, and retired Long Island Manager, Tony, arranged the annual celebration at the Holbrook Diner in Holbrook to recognize Paraco’s Veteran employees for their service to our country. What a great way for Paraco to kick-off Veterans Day!

Bob and Tony continued their show of appreciation for our Veterans today as they made their way to the Stony Brook Long Island State Veterans Home in Stony Brook.
This not-for-profit facility is a 350-bed nursing and rehab home located on the campus of Stony Brook University. Recognized as a leader among the nation’s 150 state veterans homes, this facility provides short-term rehabilitation and adult day health care to 150,000 Veterans injured from service who reside on Long Island. Offering many services such as Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Palliative care, this home comprises 40-50 World War II and Vietnam Veterans.
Fun Fact: This platform was founded by the State Veterans Home Program, established by Abe Lincoln after the Civil War, hoping to bring the country together.

While visiting the Veterans home, Bob and Tony presented the executive director with a check as Paraco’s donation to help cover therapeutic recreation programs such as arts and crafts lessons, adult education classes, and live entertainment. The Veterans certainly enjoy listening to rock and roll bands! Our contribution will help ensure these programs will continue to be brought into the facility for all the Veterans to enjoy.

Bob and Tony wrapped up their Veterans Day tribute by meeting several Veterans and delivering personal hygiene items, including brand new electric razors, for the neediest Veterans living in the Stony Brook Long Island State Veterans Home.

Paraco thanks all the Veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. We honor you today and always!
