The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation To Present Piece of World Trade Center Steel, To Jared Sattler & Tim Botting Owners of Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home.

On Wednesday November 11th at 12:00pm, representatives from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, an organization begun in memory of a fallen 9/11 firefighter, will pay a special visit to Jared Sattler & Tim Botting, Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home, Diamond Springs, to personally thank them for their generous support of the Foundation’s Building for America's Bravest (BFAB) program.

The BFAB program builds hi-tech “smart homes” for service members returning from war who have been catastrophically injured.

Carpet One Floor & Home, and its manufacturing partner Mohawk, have committed to providing flooring materials and installation for 46 of these “smart homes.” Each store's customers are invited to share information about the program with others, and make a personal contribution at the store site. The goal is to collect a donation of $10—or more—from each customer, to ultimately enable the building of at least two more “smart homes.” (

In recognition of that support, on Wednesday November 11th at 12:00pm, members of the FDNY (Fire Department of New York City)—acting on their own initiative, as ambassadors of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation—will present a specially-designed shadowbox containing hallowed 9/11 steel from Ground Zero to Jared Sattler & Tim Botting.

“We are truly humbled and honored that the Tunnel to Towers Foundation and members of the FDNY—who were actually at Ground Zero on 9/11 and during its aftermath—are travelling all the way from their home base to visit us and express their gratitude to us,” says Jared Sattler of Dick’s Carpet One Floor & Home.  “In fact, we are the ones who are thankful to them for their dedication and service. That is why we are so thrilled to be part of this impactful program that helps military heroes who have sustained the most devastating injuries.  If members of our community would like to share this experience with us, we would love to have them join us at our store for the presentation.”
