Carpet One and Mohawk have partnered with The Stephen Siller Tunnel 2 Towers Foundation whose mission is to help our most seriously injured war veterans by building “Smart Homes” that allow them to live a more normal life (www.tunnel2towers.org).
To even be considered for Tunnel 2 Towers (T2T) assistance these military personnel must have lost at least three limbs, and sadly there is a long list of folks awaiting help. The Stephen Siller Foundation hosts a number of fundraising events across the country and Will and Elizabeth Dukes have decided to participate in the upcoming 5K Race in New York later this year. The NY course is the actual path that off duty NYC fireman Stephen Siller followed as he ran from his station on 9-11 to the World Trade Center towers, where he ultimately lost his life.
Will Dukes says, “The T2T Foundation keeps fundraising and administrative costs at a minimum, with only a small percentage of funds allocated to overhead costs. I do think it is important to point out that this group is not associated with Wounded Warrior, nor its many recent issues, and T2T boasts one of the absolute best program service percentage of 92.3%.”
Please consider a donation to this very worthy group.
