The Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY) Help Fund named Verizon Frontline its 2022 Partner of the Year during the non-profit organization’s second annual awards dinner.

Verizon Frontline was presented the award for its Food for Frontline Workers program, which launched in New York during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and quickly became a national program that delivered more than 150,000 meals to American workers on the front lines of the pandemic.

“Our partnership with the EMS FDNY Help Fund on our Food for Frontline Workers initiative enabled us to deliver more than 25,000 meals from local restaurants to hundreds of first responders and healthcare workers at a critical moment in the pandemic,” said Verizon Business CEO Tami Erwin. “Thank you to the EMS FDNY Help Fund for enabling us to show our gratitude for the New York first responders on the frontlines of the pandemic response and for everything they do on behalf of emergency medical technicians and paramedics. We are incredibly proud to have Verizon Frontline named as the EMS FDNY Partner of the Year, and we look forward to partnering together in the future to serve those who serve others."

The EMS FDNY Help Fund is a 501(c)(3) whose mission is to ensure the security of emergency medical technicians and paramedics and their families in the event of death, injury, illness or hardship.

“We’re pleased to honor Verizon Frontline as Partner of the Year,” said Lt. John McGuire, EMS FDNY Help Fund treasurer. “Among our proudest achievements during the pandemic was partnering to provide 25,700 meals to FDNY EMS members, who were working 16-hour shifts from Easter Sunday to Mother’s Day in 2020. This was the largest undertaking in the history of our young Help Fund.”
