SPRING VALLEY, NY – The Vincent Crotty Memorial Foundation presented the family of Jared Lloyd, the Spring Valley firefighter who lost his life in a tragic fire in March, with a check in the amount of $125,000.00. This represents the proceeds of the tee shirt fundraiser created to benefit his two sons. Members of the board were on hand at the Columbian Fire Engine Company No. 1 for the presentation.
“While no amount of money will ever replace the loss of a father, it is our hope that the funds raised, along with that of other fundraisers will help provide for the boys throughout their childhood. It has always been the mission of the Foundation to provide for families in need within our community and we are proud to have been able to do this for Jared’s sons.” posted by the the Vincent Crotty Foundation on Facebook.
