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.
