Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund
AmeriCorps National Fixed Amount Grants FY 2011 (New)
The Terry Farrell Firefighters Fund was established in memory of Terry Farrell, a decorated member of Rescue 4/FDNY and Chief of the Dix Hills Volunteer Fire Department. Terry, along with 342 of his brothers, perished on September 11, 2001 in the World Trade Center attack. Our Fund is here to assist firefighters and their families with educational, medical and equipment needs. We support the firefighters who serve our communities. The Terry Farrell Fund is looking to organize chapters in every state so that they can give back to Firefighters in their communities. Our primary focus is assisting firefighter's families with the rising educational costs and emergency medical grants. From our founding in 2002 we have been able to give over $400,000.00 directly to the families of firefighters.
