Butler County students raise funds for Flight 93 National Memorial

Children from Haine Middle School in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania raised $1,003 for the Flight 93 National Memorial’s Tower of Voices, reports Patrick Buchnowski in the Tribune Democrat.

The Tower of Voices will be a 93-foot-high tower containing 40 wind chimes — one for each passenger and crewmember of Flight 93, who were killed by terrorists in the attacks of September 11, 2001. The wind chime, currently under construction, will stand at the entrance to the Flight 93 National Memorial by September 2018.

The children’s efforts, including mustache day and pajama day, touched Flight 93 family member Debby Borza, the mother of Deora Bodley, 20, a student aboard Flight 93 during the attack. Borza met the students when they presented their check to memorial officials.
