Fund Will Aid Heroes' Orphans

NY Post - November 11, 2009


The two children of FDNY Lt. Robert Ryan Jr., who was killed as he battled a Staten Island house fire last year, will receive $40,000 in educational funds from the Silver Shield Foundation, a police and fire charity founded by Yankee owner George Steinbrenner.

Organization president Jim Fuchs said the children of Suffolk County cop Glen Ciano, who was killed last February when a drunken driver slammed into his squad car, will also receive $40,000.
