Few events impacted the United States and the rest of the world more than September 11, 2001. And although the events that would unfold were felt across the globe, they had an extremely personal and lasting effect on New York City and the surrounding areas.
A testament to the resilience of Americans
Although the attacks were a painful point in the country’s history, the last twenty years have shown how Americans can come together to rebuild, help one another and heal. The One World Trade Center building now stands tall in New York’s skyline and is the tallest building in the United States and the entire Western Hemisphere. It is a permanent reminder that not only will the country rebuild, but it will rebuild stronger than ever.
The people themselves have also come together to support those who lost loved ones, survived the attack or assisted with rescue operations. Lasting memorials have been established to honor them and what they went through. At the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, people from all over the world can visit to learn about what happened.
Continuing support for first responders
Immediately following the attacks, firefighters, paramedics, police officers and other brave men and women selflessly went in to rescue those they could from the twin towers. In honor of their sacrifice, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation provides mortgage-free smart homes to first responders and military veterans who have suffered catastrophic injuries during their service protecting their fellow citizens. These homes are equipped to aid mobility for these heroes who rely on the use of prosthetics or wheelchairs to get around.
To support the first responders and veterans who have given so much for this country, we invite you to join us in donating to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
