My wife and I have had the good fortune of being a member of the Rochester community for the past 2 years. So when tragedy strikes our hometown like the one that took place on Christmas Eve, we immediately feel the need to act.
Rochester, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Foundation Financial Group has announced that they will be launching a philanthropic event in honor of the two firefighters in Rochester who were killed responding to a house fire on Christmas Eve.
Employees of Foundation Financial’s Rochester office, located at 1 South Washington Street Floor 3, were unsettled by the tragedy and compelled to do their part to help. As a result the FFG West Webster Fallen Heroes Initiative was established to benefit the families of the fallen volunteer firefighters.
“I am proud to know that FFG is playing a part in showing our support,” said Foundation Financial Group Event Coordinator, Darren Ross. “My wife, Lisa, and I have had the good fortune of being a member of the Rochester community for the past 2 years. So when tragedy strikes our hometown like the one that took place on Christmas Eve, we immediately feel the need to act. There is nothing that we can do undo what has happened, but in true FFG style we can do everything in our power to contribute in whatever way we can.”
“Right now there are two families that are mourning the senseless passing of two men that voluntarily gave their time on an early Christmas Eve morning to put out a house fire. They had families and gifts under the tree, but they put on their helmets anyway, hopped on their truck, and drove towards trouble when most other people would be running the other way,” he continued.
Foundation Financial Employees in offices across the nation are donating personal funds and fundraising for the FFG West Webster Fallen Heroes Initiative. The company will match what the employees raise. Foundation Financial Group will also be passing around notebooks throughout all offices. These notebooks provide FFG employees the opportunity to share their thoughts and condolences with the families of the fallen heroes and will accompany the funds raised through this event.
