At Ground Zero
Nov. 2, 2001
Meridian firefighters left for New York City today to deliver nearly $25,000 in donations and gifts to the families of fallen firefighters.
Donations have poured into the department steadily since firefighters announced their dedication to helping the victims' families.
The group's itinerary includes a presentation ceremony at "Ground Zero," the former site of the World Trade Center. Read The Meridian Star in coming days for coverage of the trip.
