Troop 810, fifteen 2nd graders from Howard Drive, has been collecting donations for the families of the firefighters lost in the WTC tragedy. Through the sale of donated memorial pins and 1200 unity ribbons the troop made, they have collected $1,775.00 and expect to increase that amount. In conjunction with collecting donations, for every person interested, the girls have created a book (25” x 20”) for people to sign with messages of condolence and/or thanks to the many New York Firefighters and their families. The book will tour the NY fire stations so that many people will have an opportunity to view it. The girls have also written messages of love, hope and feeling to include in the book. They have encouraged their school classrooms to participate as well as the Pinecrest Police Department.
“I feel sad because the two tallest buildings in the whole wide world – died” – Allison Carter age 7
“God Bless all Firefighters that died trying to save our Mommies and Daddies” – Janelle Foltz age 7
Troop 810 will present an American Flag cake to honor our own Metro-Dade fire rescue crew that just returned from New York where they assisted with the search and rescue efforts.
