Kevin Bacon Volunteers At Food Rescue Group For 9/11 Day
Footloose star Kevin Bacon spent Friday sorting through food donations to help the poor in New York City in honor of the “heroes” who lost their lives during the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001. The actor was living in Manhattan’s Upper West Side neighborhood 14 years ago when the atrocity unfolded. To mark the tragic anniversary, he decided to offer up his services as a volunteer on what has become known on social media as #911Day. He headed to Queens to help officials at food rescue charity City Harvest pick through fruit and vegetables from local farmers’ markets to repackage and distribute to the needy.
