In their words, "IAFF Local 854,Uniformed Fire Officers
Association NYC, is proud to support the 9-11 Patch project. The memory
of those who made the supreme sacrifice in the performance of duty
will never be forgotten. We would like to thank the 9-11 Patch Project
for its support of the Bravest Scholarship Fund."
UFOA President, Al Hagan
For over 8 years this project has been about wearing our hearts on our sleeves and sharing common threads. The 9/11 Tribute Patches were designed to be worn on uniforms, job-shirts, turn-out coats, and other gear as a permanent tribute to those who gave it all on 9/11. The patches also remind us all of the risk we are willing to take daily. The patches, when seen by the public, remind them of their constant need to support us.
Net proceeds raised, along with merchandise, have been donated over the years to the Terry Farrell Fighters Fund, UFA Widows and Children's Fund, World Memorial and several others. Today, funds are earmarked for the FDNY UFOA, Terry Farrell Fund, with others currently being looked at.
You can participate today by going to the 9/11 Patch Project website and clicking the "Order" tab at the top. We are currently taking "Interest Order Forms" as we need to gather orders to make cost effective production runs. No payment is required at time of order. Are goals are to raise funds and get the patches on as many uniforms or other gear as possible.
Join over 5000 other organizations in making these patches and decals your departments permanent tribute to 9/11.
