West Hempstead High School donated $1,100 raised through their Field of Honor to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation on Dec. 3. In honor of Veterans Day, the Field of Honor was made up of American flags, which were sponsored by members of the community.

The foundation’s mission includes ensuring taking care of injured service members, and families left behind by fallen first responders and fallen servicemen and women. Since its inception, the Tunnel to Towers Foundation has raised more than $250 million and is in the process of gifting 450 mortgage-free homes.
