Donaldson Farms raises more than $5K for Tunnel to Towers Foundation
MANSFIELD TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Donaldson Farms recently donated $5,243 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation after raising money through corn maze sales and donations.
Each fall, Donaldson Farms creates a new maze design in support of a charitable organization that makes a difference in the community and this year’s theme was “Tunnel to Towers.”
One dollar from every ticket sold was donated in support of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
The Siller family started the Tunnel To Towers Foundation to honor the memory of their brother, Stephen, a New York City Firefighter who laid down his life on September 11, 2001. The Foundation honors Stephen’s legacy by supporting our nation’s military heroes and First Responders and their families.
The Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T) is committed to honoring the dignity of the American Service Member and that’s why, in addition to their many impactful programs, they are helping end homelessness amongst the Veteran Community here in New Jersey and across the country.
Since 9/11, T2T has been helping America’s heroes by providing mortgage-free homes to Gold Star and fallen first responder families with young children and by building custom-designed smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans and first responders and aiding the victims of major U.S. disasters.
“We appreciate each donation from everyone who took the time to take an adventure in our corn maze! We thank those who made spontaneous, generous cash donations in the farm market, and we thank our friends of the farm that mailed in donations throughout the season! We are grateful for the compassionate gestures from amazing people that are making a difference,” Donaldson Farms posted on their Facebook page.
Darlene Finan, Manager, Development of T2T, was recently presented with the check and joining her was Greg Donaldson, David Donaldson, Justin Donaldson, Anthony Preziosi, and Ken Moose of Moose Safety Supply – sponsor of Donaldson Farms Racing – who committed to match a $500 donation to T2T.
“We are proud to support this important organization that continues to celebrate the life, courage, and memory of Stephen Siller, and their inspiring commitment to continue to ‘do good’. Learn about Stephen’s legacy by visiting www.T2T.org,” Donaldson Farms said.
