The New England Wireless Association (NEWA) on Thursday presented the Tower Family Foundation with a generous donation to help fund their outreach programs.
The foundation assists in providing financial assistance to family members of a severely injured, permanently disabled, or deceased tower worker injured or killed in an accident stemming from working at heights on communication structures or other on the job related activities that tower workers are involved in on a daily basis.
The $30,000 contribution was appreciatively accepted by Victor Drouin, a member of the non-profit’s Board of Directors.
The funds were raised during a September 19, 2019 golf tournament at Stow Acres Country Club in Stow, Massachusetts.
The event’s proceeds also provided $30,000 for NEWA’s scholarship program and $4,000 for the Fallen Seven Fund.
On June 21, 2019 in Randolph, New Hampshire, seven combat veterans and members of the Jarheads Motorcycle Club were on their way to an American Legion retreat when a driver swerved into their eastbound lane on Route 2, killing the seven Harley Davidson riders.
A memorial sculpture was unveiled in October.
