Hero Report: Chris Levi

Chris LeviOn March 17, 2008, US Army Ranger Christopher Levi, a Holbrook, Long Island resident, was severely injured when his Hume was hit by an improvised exploding device in Iraq. Christopher suffered critical injuries, including the loss of both of his legs. He is also in danger of losing his right arm. Christopher will be hospitalized for at least 18 months. Levi's family and friends are now seeking assistance to help defray the costs of renovating Levi's home - an estimated $100,000 job - so that it is handicap accessible upon his return. The goal is to raise enough funds to cover the costs of all of the building materials and to receive donations in the form of labor so that upon Christopher's return, he can be both physically and emotionally comfortable having the full support of both family and friends.






Building Homes for Heroes presented Army Corporal Christopher Levi with a check for $50,000 at a fundraiser held in the outdoor Biergarten at the Plattdeutsche Park Restaurant in Franklin Square, Long Island.  The event was held to raise funds to support the costs associated with renovating Levi's home - an estimated $100,000 project - so that the home is handicap accessible upon his return.  Including the pledge made by Building Homes for Heroes, the event, which was attended by more than 300 people, raised approximately $80,000.  Renovations of the home are set to begin in August of 2008.
