HEART 9/11 assisted in the building of a specially adapted home for one of our wounded returning veterans – USMC Corporal Manny Jimenez, a U.S. war veteran who was wounded on a tour of duty in the Middle East. Over forty HEART 9/11 volunteers from organizations including the NYPD, FDNY, and NYC trade unions traveled to Glastonbury, CT. The goal is not just to build a home, but to help rebuild the life of an American Hero. HEART 9/11 is proud to be working to help Purple Heart Homes and the community of Glastonbury, CT rebuild Manny’s home.

Taking care of our own - sharing the hard learned lessons of our 9/11 experience.
