9/11 Memorial staff members presented “Dear Hero” cards to New York firefighters and police officers as part of the #Tribute2983 campaign.

As part of the #Tribute2983 campaign, which encourages acts of kindness and service during the holiday season, the 9/11 Memorial Museum had visitors sign thank you cards for members of the FDNY, NYPD and Port Authority Police Department.

Museum staff delivered the cards as well as quilts made by children at the museum to FDNY Engine 10/Ladder 10 across the street from the memorial as well as two NYPD precincts in New York. Each child designed his or her own quilt square, which were then sewn together, during the museum’s educational programs.
