CBS — Holiday Meals for Heroes in Montgomery County honors fallen, injured first responders for Easter weekend

PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa. (CBS) — The 17th annual Holiday Meals for Heroes helped the families of fallen and injured first responders start the holiday weekend with a breakfast at Sunnybrook Gold Club.

“They’re all members of the worst club in the world, made up of the finest people in the world,” said James Binns, president and CEO of Holiday Meals for Heroes. He was talking about the families attending the breakfast on Good Friday.

Binns’ mission was to make sure no one forgets the fallen and injured first responders in these pictures. Heroes like Sergeant Christopher Fitzgerald, the first Temple University officer killed in the line of duty last year. He also wanted to honor Philadelphia Police Sergeant Richard Mendez, a 22-year veteran who was shot and killed while trying to intervene during a car break-in at Philadelphia International Airport last October.
