With the Somerset Veterans Memorial Park opening soon, SPEDA has shifted its community fundraising efforts to supporting another initiative that honors first responders and military heroes.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to join this effort by contributing to the repurposed Somerset-Pulaski County Special Response Team 9/11 Memorial, which features a steel I-beam from the fallen World Trade Center Twin Towers.
First & Farmers National Bank has joined the effort as the title sponsor. G & L Refrigeration Inc. (Jeff and Phyllis Kidd) and Angela’s Personal Touch (Jason and Angela Watson) have each sponsored a black granite column measuring 11 feet tall and 17 inches square, a proportional size to the Twin Towers when they stood in New York City. The columns will hold a piece of the north tower I-beam weighing 3,000 pounds between them.
The following sponsorship levels are available:
Gold Sponsor — $1,000
Silver Sponsor — $500
Bronze Sponsor — $250
All donors will be recognized on-site with a bronze placard. A second bronze placard will tell the story of the gifted steel. A time capsule will also be placed on site with various special response service and military items.
