The recent campaign matched all donations and resulted in a total gift of $25,000.
MENDOTA HEIGHTS, MN –A hero emerges when they selflessly respond to the need of others in front of them, which oftentimes means sacrificing their own health and safety. Tunnel to Towers Foundation was born from the tragedy of 9/11 and carries out its mission to “do good” for fallen first responder families with young children and catastrophically injured veterans and first responders.
The efforts of Tunnel to Towers recently caught the attention of Summit Companies. The two organizations, with strong alignment of both missions and values, developed a relationship for the purpose of supporting the ongoing efforts of Tunnel to Towers.
Throughout the year, donations have been collected from employees and customers. Recently Summit Companies offered a match for all donations and because of the generosity of employees and customers, they are proudly giving $25,000 to support the efforts of Tunnel to Towers.
“I am both humbled and proud to play a small part in what the Tunnel to Towers Foundation works so hard to achieve. It’s rewarding to support their mission and be associated with their efforts. Each of the groups that benefit from the foundation, including veterans, fallen first responders Gold Star families, and others, align with the culture and values of our company, as well as for my personal values. I am forever grateful for what our heroes have done and continue to do for us. We have them to thank for our freedom,” stated Jeff Evrard, CEO of SFP Holding (Summit Companies).
With more than $500 million raised in support of our nation’s heroes and their families, Tunnel to Towers is committed to not forgetting those who have served. They provide mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children. Tunnel to Towers also builds specially adapted smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders. Additionally, they are committed to eradicating veteran homelessness and helping America to Never Forget September 11, 2001.
“We’d like to thank Summit Companies for this generous donation and for its support of our mission to help America’s service members and veterans, and first responders and the families left behind when their loved ones make the ultimate sacrifice,” stated Andrew McClure, senior manager of development for the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. “Giving is not just about making a financial donation. It’s about making a difference in the lives of those in need. This donation shows Tunnel to Towers recipients that the great people at Summit have not forgotten their service and sacrifice.”
