Appreciative firefighters of Ladder 54 were among the first to receive a "Bravest of the Brave" Firefighters Angel Banner complete with all the names of their fallen brothers.
NEW YORK -- In response to a growing demand from NYC firefighters, ArtAID launched the "Firehouse Banner Project" for the free distribution of this beautiful banner to firehouses of the FDNY.
Many Firehouses have already received banners, but many are still waiting to receive one. You may participate by sponsoring a firehouse of your choosing. Please check our membership options or send an email to email@example.com sponsor your local firehouse now.
ArtAID provides Firefighters Angel Banners with the names of their fallen brothers to firehouses most effected by September 11. It is a healing experience to memorialize a tragic loss with a beautiful image, to console with an uplifting experience of beauty and hope.

We still have many requests from many firefighters for a copy of the FDNY Firefighters Angel Memorial.
Franciscan Brothers from the Assisi Monastary receive a print sponsored by friends of Fr. Mychal Judge. It was presented to the firehouse across the street from the Church where Fr. Judge once led the minstry as the Chaplain of the FDNY. He was one of the first to die on September 11, hit by falling debris while giving Last Rites to victims of the attack.
Engine 55 got one of the first prints donated by a local restaurant.
Engine 23 received the Firefighters Angel with names on Christmas.
If you wish to know more about this project, please contact us by email at info@ArtAID.org.
The Firefighters Angel was quickly adopted by firefighters an icon of the FDNY memorials. It has also been donated to FDNY fundraisers, the Fire Museum, and has raised thousands of dollars for various firefighter funds, from individual firehouses to the Uniformed Firefighter Association (UFA) Widow's and Children's fund, the main charity identified by ArtAID.
From Ground Zero to Brooklyn, Chelsea to Harlem, ArtAID distributed dozens of Firehouse banners to FDNY.
