The Tunnel to Towers Foundation is stepping up to assist the selfless health care workers risking their lives every day in the battle against the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, Proper No. Twelve Whiskey joins our efforts with a $100,000 donation to the new COVID-19 Heroes Fund.
Tunnel to Towers started the COVID-19 Heroes Fund with a $3 million pledge in support of frontline health care workers, providing meals, personal protective equipment and, should a health care worker lose their life to COVID-19 and leave behind young children, financial relief through temporary mortgage payments on their family’s home.
“Right now, health care workers are being asked to come to work every day. They are risking their lives to fight back against COVID-19. If they lose their lives to this disease, while trying to save others our families , the Tunnel to Towers Foundation will be there to help their families stay in their homes,” said Frank Siller Chairman and CEO of the Tunnel to Towers Foundation.
Earlier this year, Proper No. Twelve, the Irish Whiskey brand of Multiple weight MMA Champion Conor McGregor, donated $1 million to the Foundation in support of our work on behalf of our nation’s first responders. Now, McGregor’s Proper No. Twelve, is contributing a generous $100,000 to the COVID-19 Heroes Fund. Alongside this donation, Proper No. Twelve has created a limited edition Sportige T-Shirt, proudly sporting the phrase “One For All.” 100% of the proceeds of sales of this T-Shirt will benefit Tunnel to Towers.
