In memory of Lieutenant Kevin Deane, a Yonkers firefighter who died
tragically after a skiing accident, firefighters from Fire Station #8 on
Warburton Avenue visited Museum School 25 to present flowers to the
school's youngest students so that the children have a gift to present
their mothers and mother figures in celebration of Mother's Day.
The flowers were donated by The Kevin Deane Foundation, which raises
money for numerous local charities including the Ronald McDonald House,
Holy Name Society of the Yonkers Fire Department and The Ursuline
Captain Eric Dronzek said that the event is part of the YFD's efforts to
give back to the city and support its youngest citizens.
