Disaster Relief/Recovery
Population Served:
Other Named Groups
None

Program Description:

Originally formed in response to a 5-year-old New York City boy's desire to help children who lost their toys and homes in the Southern California wildfires in October 2003, the New York Says Thank You Foundation organized a cross-country relief drive to San Diego County in November and December 2003 to help the families devastated by the California wildfires. Over 500 New Yorkers and Americans from all across the country participated in our initial efforts. With the help of the Lions Club, the Rodeph Sholom School in New York City, and JetBlue Airways, we were able to outfit a recreation room for the 300 children of Harbison Canyon, CA, a rural community east of San Diego in which 287 of 388 homes burned to the ground in the October 2003 Cedar Fire. On the weekend of September 11, 2004, The New York Says Thank You Foundation sent 14 volunteers from New York - including 11 FDNY firefighters from the Upper West Side of Manhattan - to help rebuild three homes in Harbison Canyon, CA that were lost in the San Diego County wildfires. It was an extraordinary day as we brought together two communities from across the United States -- California wildfire survivors and New York City firefighters -- and enabled them to focus on rebuilding together on the 9/11 Anniversary.

Program Long-Term Success:

Committed to repair/rebuild 200 under-insured homes of active duty FDNY, NYPD, DSNY and volunteer firefighters/EMT.

Program Short-Term Success:

We have completed 63 homes, had over 500 volunteers work over 3000 volunteer hours.

Program Success Monitored by:

ROI - how much value can we add to a first responder home by spending the least amount of money, but having the biggest impact.

Program Success Examples:

Dug ditches around 3 drainage tanks in the front and back yards so as to be able to put new liner around the tank; which would allow for better drainage, 11 volunteers, 6 hours, $50 to complete the job.

Program Description:

Destroyed in the collapse of the World Trade Center on September 11 and stitched back together seven years later by tornado survivors in Greensburg, Kansas, The National 9/11 Flag is a living testament to the resilience and compassion of the American people. Currently on a journey across America through the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11, the goal of The National 9/11 Flag Tour is to display this historic flag at leading venues nationwide, to empower local service heroes in all 50 states with the privilege of stitching the flag back to its original 13-stripe format, and to inspire 300 million Americans with the flag’s rich visual history in order to deepen our sense of citizenship and national pride and bolster the spirit of volunteerism on the 9/11 Anniversary and year-round. When complete, The National 9/11 Flag will become a part of the permanent collection of the National September 11 Memorial Museum being built at the World Trade Center. Restore. Empower. Inspire.

Program Long-Term Success:

In honor of the 10th Anniversary of 9/11, we completed a 50 State Restoration Tour of the flag. It was restored with the help of over 25m000 Americans who places their stitch in the flag. The National 9/11 Flag was completed in Joplin, Missouri on the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 and will soon become a part of the permanent exhibit at the National 9/11 Memorial & Museum.
