“The Benefit Fund is amazing and I am so grateful for everything that they have done for me since my husband passed away on September 11th. Events that are put together for the families and children are such a beautiful thing because we are able to meet other people and donors and watch the kids have a good time. Seeing the benefactors and being able to thank them means a lot to me too. It is also very important for the kids to know that there is always someone out there who is thinking of them, and The Benefit Fund has provided them with that.
The annual stipend has truly helped me and always comes when I need it the most. I have used it to pay bills and for home improvement, and I am very grateful for it.
Everything the Benefit Fund does is never left unnoticed, and I am very grateful for what they do for all of these families, both of the present and of the future.”
