Operation Backpack donates a school bag full of supplies they will need for their grade
Since Volunteers of America-Greater New York was founded in 1896, they have relied on community support to help enrich the lives of those in need. Every backpack given to a child through Operation Backpack® is filled with brand new school supplies according to the child’s grade, so that these children look and feel just like their classmates.
For example, high-schoolers get a dictionary and a scientific calculator, while the youngest children receive watercolor paint sets, washable markers and drawing pads. Children preparing to take geometry receive a protractor, compass and graph paper. Sirina Fire Protection and its employees are proud to have been able to contribute to this cause.
Cycle for Cure / Cycle for Survival
Cycle for Survival is an initiative created to fight rare cancers.
Rare cancer patients make up about half of all people fighting cancer, but they often have limited or no treatment options because rare cancer research is drastically underfunded.
Cycle for Survival raised $30 million in 2016—more than $140 million in a decade. Every single dollar is directly allocated to rare cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center within six months of the events.
In March of 2018, Rosalinde Ziskroit, an employee of Sirina Fire Protection, participated in her third year supporting Cycle for Survival.
Since becoming involved with Cycle for Survival, she has committed to help beat rare cancers. We have all been touched with stories of someone losing a friend, a loved one and with continued support, one day a cure will be found to beat rare cancers.
She rides for those we love, for those who can’t, for those fighting today and for those who will fight.
Roz and Sirina Fire Protection thank you for your continued support.
