MASON, Mich. — Mason is hosting their annual "Mason Cares" event Wednesday night to honor those who died on 9/11, and the daily service of police and fire departments and rescue personnel.

The event will be at the James M. Pelton memorial fire station and started at 1 p.m. The memorial service will start at 7 p.m.

The event is an opportunity for people to volunteer to help support firefighters, police officers and rescue personnel by doing little things that go a long way and show gratitude.

Volunteers can help clean, wash and wax fire trucks and police cars, clean the fire station, and the child fire safety house.

They're also providing a meal for first responders.

One of the organizers said it's an honor to serve those who serve so many themselves.

"I am grateful for them because like I say when I'm running away from something they're running towards something whether it's a fire, an accident, they're there to help us and we appreciate that," one of the organizers said.

Many of the volunteers at the event are students who hadn't been born on 9/11.
