Small paper sign with blue printed text: "WTC Family Center | South Nassau Communities Hospital | www.wtcfamilycenter.org." The front has been autographed by four New York Islander hockey players: Jason Blake, Eric Cairns, Mark Parrish, and Roman Hamrlik.
The mission of the World Trade Center Family Center was to provide bereavement education and counseling support services to people who lost family members as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. Programs and activities were designed to support children’s and adults’ resilience and coping skills and to strengthen family bonds. The Center often organized events in conjunction with area sports teams where the families were able to meet with players. This sign was taken to a NY Islanders game where WTC Family Center participants collected autographs.
