This Sunday our nation will remember one of the most pivotal tragedies of the 21st century on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in New York, the Pentagon and flight 93 in Pennsylvania.
The students at Heritage High School are showing how much those who gave their lives on that day remain on their minds by gathering donations for the Brooklyn-based FDNY Fire Engine 214, Ladder 111 crew, also known as "the Nuthouse."
Following Sept. 11, 2001, Heritage reached out to the fire station, and on the fifth anniversary raised enough funds to provide a Honey Baked Ham dinner for the firemen and the families of the firefighters from that station that died on 9/11.
The students at Heritage are once again raising funds for a Honey Baked Ham dinner for this Sunday.
There will be a table set up at lunch Thursday and Friday for donations, along with a table at the Patriots' football game against Loganville on Friday night.
So far $165 has been raised towards Sunday's dinner.
