After the 9/11 attacks on our country, Nancy Carbone created Friends of Firefighters to provide therapy and emotional counseling for firefighters who not only survived, but also those who helped in the aftermath of the attacks. Some of whom (quite a few actually) would later develop PTSD symptoms.
But as time passes and memories fade, so do contributions. Often times with charity work, you need a charity committed to helping over the long term and Friends of Firefighters is just such an entity. And we all know theCHIVERS have serious followthrough as well…
Nancy confided in us that she was scrambling for funding and didn’t know what to do. She was almost $50,000 short of her budget. Without those funds, Nancy would be forced to close some of the critical programs which were just making strides with the first responders.
Here at theCHIVE, we are committed to helping charities that help with PTSD. We recently donated $40,000 to the Combat Stress Recovery Program and today Chive Charities is proud to announce a $50,000 donation to Friends of Firefighters.
This website would be nothing without those that serve our country. Y’all are the core of theCHIVE and we will continue stepping to the plate to do whatever we can to provide support on your behalf.
