Members of this association have lost everything they owned, homes, cars, computers, photos, personal items and heirlooms. Memories, forever gone. Some, have tales of survival that will just leave you in tears. Some, had no insurance, others it will never be adequate to cover their losses.
So we come to you today to ask you two things, one, to forward this email to everyone you know so we can get them to help us, and two, for you to make a donation through our website or mail us a gift card to our PO Box, FDNY EMS Retirees Association, INC PO Box 260153 Bellerose, NY 11426.
