Fallen Heroes Initiative

NYPD Fallen Heroes



In light of recent tragic events, the Mayors Fund to Advance NYC is raising funds through its Fallen Heroes Relief Effort to support the NYPD and the family of fallen Officer Miosotis Familia, who was tragically killed in the line of duty on Wednesday, July 5th.

Mayor de Blasio and First Lady McCray have asked all New Yorkers to do what they can to support our NYPD community. The Fund's Fallen Heroes Relief Effort works with the NYPD to coordinate support to organizations such as: the New York City Police Foundation - Heroes Fund, the NYC Police and Fire Widow's and Children Fund, Silver Shield Foundation, and others, based on the immediate and long terms needs of the families affected.

Mayor de Blasio said on Wednesday of Officer Familia, a 12 year veteran of the 46th Precinct:  "She was on duty serving this city, protecting people, doing what she believed in, and doing the job she loved."

Please contribute today through the Mayor's Fund website or feel free to contact our office (212-788-7794) to speak about arrangements.
