Big turn-out in Bourne for homeless event in Buzzards Bay last night
Over 100 people attended the 2011 kickoff of the Homeless for the Holidays campaign at the Mezza Luna Restaurant in Buzzards Bay Thursday evening which was organized by the Bourne Fire Department and radio station Pixy 103..
Bourne firefighter Craig Poirier, along with several other firefighters and volunteers, coordinated the kickoff for the annual event. People brought toys, non-perishable food items and cash donations to the event.
Each year off-duty firefighters and other volunteers brave the elements to help the homeless. This year's event starts in December.
