Picerno-Giordano Construction and Where Angels Play Foundation

The Sandy Ground Project is extraordinarily grateful to Rich Picerno Toni Giordano of Picerno Giordano, LLC for the energy and devotion they have put towards the planning and the building of all 26 playgrounds.

Toni first met many of the firefighters from the NJFMBA, New Jersey Firemen’s Mutual Benevolent Association, when they joined forces in 2006 to build playgrounds in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina.  The Newtown tragedy brought them together again.

Toni Giordano:

“The first major meeting at the NJFMBA office in Rahway, NJ was packed with firefighters & police officers from New Jersey and New York, corporate executives, several foundation executives and volunteers, ready.  Ready to work, donate money, donate supplies, whatever had to be done to get this mission on the way.

We all shared our stories, we all openly cried then we hugged and shook hands making a commitment to build the 26 playgrounds.“

Rich and Toni’s knowledge, insight, talent and sensitivity to each family’s requests are reflected in the 26 built playgrounds and will continue to be so as this project continues.
