In the wake of the Christmas Eve tragedy, The Xerox Foundation will contribute $20,000 to the West Webster Volunteer Firemen's Association. The donation will be used to support their families, as well to help two other West Webster firefighters who were wounded as a result of the ambush.
This is the statement released by Xerox CEO Ursula Burns.
"Webster is home for many at Xerox, and we are forever grateful to the men and women who protect our people, and make possible a rich community life. Our hearts break for the families of our fallen brothers. We offer our prayers and support to the other firefighters who were wounded by this craven attack, as well as to the families of all of our heroes who will continue to protect our people, our homes, and our community."
If you wish to donate to the West Webster Fire Department, you can go to their website http://westwebsterfd.org/, or you can make a check out to West Webster Volunteer Firemen’s Association, and you can mail them to West Webster Volunteer Firemen’s Association 1051 Gravel Road Webster, New York 14580.
