Relief Fund Gives $1000 To Families

More than 200 families walked out of PS 253 with $1000 thanks to The Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund and BGC Partners.

The Fund is adopting 19 elementary schools throughout areas affected by Hurricane Sandy and will be distributing a $1,000 prepaid debit card to each family from the selected schools.

“We understand the tremendous loss that has shaken so many families, and are committed to provide money directly to those in need,” said Howard W. Lutnick, Chairman and CEO of Cantor Fitzgerald.

Edie Lutnick, Executive Director of the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, said “We learned from the tragedy of 9/11 how important it is to provide support directly to people who are suffering.”

The adopt a school program set up by Cantor and BGC Partners include Rockaway schools, PS 256, PS 43 and PS 114.
