Neighborhood Firefighters Help Students' Gratitude "Bloom" for Mother's Day


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 School.

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.
