Silver Bay



At Minnesota Veterans Home - Silver Bay, we pride ourselves on providing the highest quality health care for our Veterans. To enrich the lives of our Veterans, we rely on the support and dedication of our community of Volunteers. Volunteers contribute tremendously to the quality of life of our Veterans by providing invaluable support and sharing their experience, time and compassion with our Residents. If you or someone you know would like to make a difference, please contact Randall Walz at (218) 353-8704 or If you would like to make an online financial donation please visit the Silver Bay Donations page.


Family members, friends, community members and Veteran organizations play a key role in helping us serve those who served through generous donations of time and money. We set ourselves apart by providing great recreational programming and taking Residents to exciting places and events. If you’re interested in donating so we can continue to give back to our Veterans who gave so much for us, see the following list of activities, events and requested donation items.
