Smith & Warren donates $31,675 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. - In honor of the 20th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, Smith & Warren, a leading manufacturer of metal badges and insignia worn by public safety professionals, has donated $31,675 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The funds were raised through the sale of 9/11 20th Anniversary badges and insignia, designed to honor the first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice responding to the terrorist attacks of 9/11 and those who continue to be affected. 10% of the proceeds from every order is being donated to Tunnel to Towers.
"We have made it part of our company's mission to give back to the public safety community through partnerships with great charities. For the 9/11 20th Anniversary program, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation was our first choice because of the direct support they provide to first responders and their families in times of need," said Lee Galperin, President of Smith & Warren.
"The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is so appreciative of Smith & Warren. We are grateful for their generosity, and that they share our determination in making sure America Never Forgets the lives lost twenty years ago. Knowing that this donation came from first responder communities around the country, seeking to honor their fallen peers, is very special," said Tunnel to Towers Chairman and CEO Frank Siller.
