“The Benefit Fund helped my dream of graduating from Seton Hall School of Law; I had used the money to attend Law School successfully! I am very grateful to the New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund, and I will never forget the donor’s outpouring of such care for us.
I have a special memory of the Annual Gala, which I attended for years until I moved out of state in 2007. I enjoyed the social aspect of seeing my fellow widows, especially from other agencies such as the NYPD and FDNY. There are not any other joint agency survivor events to attend, and it truly has had intangible results: lifetime friendships forged.
The Benefit Fund and its supporters have changed a terrible chapter in my life into a future with hope.”
