https://goo.gl/maps/yNgIm Presentation will begin at 5:00 PM Representatives from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization begun in memory of a fallen 9/11 firefighter, will pay a special visit to Kevin & Kristy Ridilla, Cliff’s Carpet One in Latrobe, to personally thank them for their generous support of the Foundation’s Building for America’s Bravest (BFAB) program. The BFAB program builds hi-tech “smart homes” for service members returning from war who have been catastrophically injured. Carpet One Floor & Home, and its manufacturing partner Mohawk, have committed to providing flooring materials and installation for 46 of these “smart homes.” Each store’s customers are invited to share information about the program with others, and make a personal contribution at the store site. The goal is to collect a donation of $10—or more—from each customer, to ultimately enable the building of at least two more “smart homes.” (http://www.carpetone.com/ our-bravest). In recognition of that support, members of the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City)—acting on their own initiative, as ambassadors of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation— will present a specially-designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero to Kevin & Kristy Ridilla. “We are truly humbled and honored that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and members of the FDNY—who were actually at Ground Zero on 9/11 and during its aftermath—are traveling all the way from their home base to visit us and express their gratitude to us,” says Kevin, Cliff’s Carpet One, “In fact, we are the ones who are thankful to them for their dedication and service. That is why we are so thrilled to be part of this impacting program that helps military heroes who have sustained the most devastating injuries.” About Cliff’s Carpet One.
