Previous Causes

Jennifer worked in the World Trade Center and was a victim to the terrorist attacks on September 11th. Since then we have been committed to keeping Jen’s memory alive and to ensure everyone always remembers September 11th. Jen always thought of others first and she continues to reach out to those in need through the causes listed below.

The support has been overwhelming and we deeply appreciate the generosity of so many people.
