MKFD Continues Fundraising Efforts for Memorial; Receives $5,000 Donation

The Mount Kisco Fire Department continues to make progress on raising funds for Mount Kisco’s 9/11 Memorial. The 9/11 Memorial Project will be built by volunteers in the construction and pool businesses with manpower from the MKFD.

The MKFD, however, will have to raise funds as the current design of the memorial will have two slabs of black granite to symbolize the World Trade Center towers and a pentangular pool to memorialize the victims of the attack on the Pentagon. The 9/11 Memorial Project recently received a $5,000 from Joseph Cosentino, a local businessman and Chairman of the Mount Kisco Planning Board.

While the 9/11 Memorial Committee has received some large donations recently, donations of any size are needed to complete the memorial by this September, the tenth anniversary of the attack and resulting tragedy.

To donate, send a check payable to Mount Kisco Volunteer Fire Department, PO Box 91; Mount Kisco, NY 10549. You can also call the Mount Kisco Fire Department 9-11 Committee’s chairpeople, Paul Felice at 914-241-4593 and Rich Alexander at 914-218-8334.
