"Whether they’re deployed or transitioning back into civilian life, our troops need to know that their families are being taken care of so they can focus on their work at hand. BNY Mellon is committed to supporting both active and returning military personnel and is proud to join with the USO and the 9/11 Tribute Center to give back to local military families," said Daisey Holmes, Managing Director of Corporate Affairs at BNY Mellon. "The fact that so many of our employees volunteer for this event year after year demonstrates the deep commitment our company has for this cause and how much we appreciate everything our troops do to support our country.”
A special thank-you to BNY Mellon, our Chief Executive Leadership Sponsor, for their generous support of this special event.
The 9/11 Tribute Center is a visitor center opened in 2006 by the September 11th Families Association, a not-for-profit corporation. 9/11 Tribute Center offers visitors to the World Trade Center a place where they can connect with people from the 9/11 community: family members of lost loved ones, survivors, first responders and people who live and work in Lower Manhattan. Through walking tours, exhibits and programs, the 9/11 Tribute Center offers "Person to Person History," linking visitors who want to understand and appreciate the historic events with those who experienced them. Visitors learn factual information about the events, the identity of 2,973 people killed in the attacks, the unprecedented rescue and recovery operations and the tremendous spirit of support and generosity that arose after the attacks. Personal gallery and walking tour experiences are available for student and group visits.
“Every tour that I conduct allows me to give voice to the horror that occurred at the World Trade Center site on 9/11 and to pay my perpetual respects to the memory of the victims.”
