The New York City Fire Department has been a longtime supporter of Building Homes for Heroes, including more than $300,000 donated through the department’s FDNY 343 Ride, an annual bicycle trip held on the anniversary of September 11. The FDNY’s Boxing Team also holds numerous events throughout the year for the benefit of Building Homes for Heroes.
This past March, the FDNY generously donated $15,000 to Building Homes for Heroes in behalf of U.S. Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant Christopher Claude.
Since Building Homes for Heroes and Chase united in 2012 for the benefit of U.S. military veterans, the partnership has made extraordinary progress in changing the lives of those who serve and protect our nation.
