We’ll be highlighting RoomFunding™ projects here on our blog. Next up is The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund…
A little bit about The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund
The New York Police and Fire Widows’ and Children’s Benefit Fund (Answer the Call) was created to help the families of first responders who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty. They offer the families financial assistance as well as a network of support. They’ve distributed over $130 million dollars to the the families including over $2.4 million dollars last year.
Why we love this project
Answer the Call also hosts several events for the families, including inviting 66 families to attend a New York Mets game every year. This annual event lets the family members enjoy a day of fun while connecting with other families who have gone through similar experiences. And who doesn’t love a good baseball game!
If we can get 4,000 room nights for them, then we can fund tickets for 250 children of fallen heroes.
How you can help
For every room night that actualizes, Hotels for Hope donates $2 to Answer the Call’s RoomFunding project…at no cost to you. But they need your help to reach their goal of 4,000 room nights. How do you do that, you ask? There are two simple ways to do this…
- Book room nights from your next business trip or a personal stay. Every room night matters and gets them closer to reaching their goal.
- Commit your next meeting or event. If your company hosts meetings or conferences, you could support Answer the Call in a bigger way. Whether you are organizing a conference, meeting, board retreat, sporting event, festival, or large consumer event…we’ve got your back. Our services and technology will make planning these events much easier.
So what do you say, can you help Answer the Call out?
