Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano visited Dutch Broadway Elementary School in Elmont, on Friday, June 3rd, to celebrate the staff and students’ participation in the 4th Annual Building Homes for Heroes Walk-a-thon. The proceeds from the walk-a-thon are used towards Building Homes for Heroes, a national non-profit organization that rebuilds or modifies homes and gifts them mortgage-free to veterans and their families.
“I would like recognize all of the teachers, faculty, students and the Building Homes for Heroes volunteers and staff for their hard work and dedication in putting this event together,” said County Executive Mangano. “More than 100,000 veterans call Nassau County home, and we know how tough it is to transition from active military service to civilian life. Initiatives like the Walk-A-Thon are just one example of how communities and residents can help “serve” all of our veterans.”
