DEERFIELD TOWNSHIP, Ohio - A piece of the Twin Towers was on display in Deerfield Crossing on Tuesday.
The Chick-fil-A on Merten Drive displayed a piece of metal from the towers until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
Warren County officials hope to preserve the metal in a 9/11 Memorial at the Lebanon Justice Center. Officials said the display will consist of two 9-foot-tall granite towers, with the piece of steel encased in a shadowbox.
"It's a way of honoring those that died in 9/11, as well as building a memorial to the present day heroes--the other firefighters and paramedics that are still in service today," said Ed Hennel, Chick-fil-A Marketing Director.
If you donate $5 to the memorial at Chick-fil-A, you'll get a free flag and a sandwich coupon. You can also go to the group's Facebook page to donate directly, or send a check made payable to "Warren County 9/11 Memorial" to PO Box 495, Lebanon, OH 45036.
