Barasch & McGarry would like to express its incredible gratitude and admiration for all of the first responders who are now risking their own safety to protect the people of New York City and beyond during this difficult time.
It is with great privilege that the firm announces its donation of 15,000 N-95 safety masks to the FDNY. This donation would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of retired firefighter Ken Specht, Ret. FDNY, L 133, who arranged for the firm’s purchase of the N-95 masks. Also a big thank you to Oren Barzilay, President of Local 2507, who urged Michael Barasch of Barasch & McGarry to remember the EMTs and paramedics on the front lines of this crisis.
Finally, thank you to John Feal of the FealGood Foundation for his advocacy on behalf of the many first responders who are currently on the front lines without sufficient personal protective equipment.
In addition to donating N-95 masks, Barasch & McGarry is buying meals for our wonderful and selfless health care workers. They are our heroes.
“Ken, John, and I fought together on Capitol Hill for the extension of the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund,” said Michael Barasch. “We are proud to be fighting together again, this time against an invisible and lethal enemy.”
