“The Let Us Do Good Village, which is what we are calling our development, is a community created by our Foundation, which is going to bring these families together,” said Matthew Mahoney, Executive Vice President of the Foundation. It will be the first development of its type in the country, created by a Foundation that began 20 years ago, in the aftermath of the September 11 terrorist attacks. 

 

The Foundation is named after Stephen Siller, a firefighter who had finished his shift and was on his way home when the attacks occurred at the Twin Towers. Instead of going home, the firefighter turned around and headed back toward Lower Manhattan. When he wasn’t able to drive into the area because of the emergency, Mahoney said, “Stephen donned over 60 pounds of firefighting gear on his back and ran over two miles to the World Trade Center, ultimately losing his life that day at the South Tower.” Siller was one of 343 firefighters who perished, of the 406 first responders lost that day. He left behind five young children. Read more
