101-hour fundraiser will benefit the Falmouth Service Center

FALMOUTH - Falmouth Firefighters Local 1397 and Bourne Firefighters Local 1717 will go "homeless for the holidays" next week to benefit a worthy local cause.

With the support of Pixy 103 FM and Y101 FM, the firefighters will "camp out" at PAL of Cape Cod beginning Wednesday, December 11 at 8 a.m. through noon on Sunday, November 15.

During that 101-hour period, firefighters will be collecting new unwrapped toys, non-perishable food and cash donations to benefit the Falmouth Service Center.

This is the first year Falmouth firefighters will be hosting the annual holiday event, according to Michael Mueller of Falmouth Firefighters Local 1397. The event has been hosted by Bourne firefighters for the past ten years.
