Making a Difference: Supporting Tunnel to Towers Through Real Estate Transactions

Why I  Support Tunnels to Towers Foundation:

On September 11, 2021, Stephen Siller, who was assigned to the New York City Fire Department Brooklyn's Rescue Squad One, had just finished his shift and was on his way to play golf with his brothers when he got word over his scanner of a plane hitting the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Upon hearing the news, Stephen called his wife Sally and asked her to tell his brothers he would catch up with them later. He returned to Rescue Squad One to get his gear. Stephen drove his truck to the entrance of the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel, but it had already been closed for security purposes. Determined to carry out his duty, he strapped 60 lbs.  of gear to his back and raced on foot through the tunnel to the Twin Towers, where he gave up his life while saving others. I am a First Responder to the World Trade Center attack on 9/11, serving as a Captain with the New York City Police Department.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty Prime Time wanted to give back to a charity that serves others, and I found that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation is exactly what I am looking for. Since I'm a native New Yorker and resided in New York during the attacks, I found this charity to be very close to my heart. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation not only supports our nation's First Responders with the Faller First Responders Home Program, but also helps both members of our military and their families. We will never forget the sacrifices they have made. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation supports our military with the Gold Star Family Home Program as well as the Smart Home Program.

By supporting the Tunnel to Towers Foundation, we are helping to ensure that the families of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our safety and freedom are taken care of. Our contribution can help provide a home for a family who has lost their breadwinner, or fund a scholarship for a child who has lost a parent.
