President Glenn Schuck announced the donation after he looked into several relief funds offering help to people throughout the tri-state region. Glenn’s number one criterion: that the money be used quickly – today – to get relief where it’s needed most.
Tunnel To Towers is a recognized foundation that sponsors a run through the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel each September in memory of Stephen Siller, a New York firefighter who ran the length of the tunnel in full gear to reach the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. Siller died that day at ground zero.
Tunnel to Towers has grown over the years and now sponsors several relief efforts, including helping 911 families, firefighter families, and U.S. military men and women wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Here is a link to their website: http://www.tunneltotowersrun.org/
