At noon on Tuesday, Oct. 20, 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 Advance Carpet One in St. Peters, to personally thank Brewer for the company’s 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.”
In recognition of that support, members of the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City) – acting as ambassadors of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation – will present a specially-designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero to Advance Carpet One on Oct. 20. The public is invited to attend this presentation.
