HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of volunteers from several organizations will join Hattiesburg firefighters in honoring the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks this weekend by taking part in a number of community service projects.

The second annual #WeAreHattie will give volunteers opportunities to help local animal shelters, the Special Olympics and distribute free smoke detectors to homeowners.

The event is being organized by the University of Southern Mississippi's Center for Civic and Community Engagement, Volunteer Hattiesburg and the City of Hattiesburg.

A kick-off event was held Friday morning at Hattiesburg's Fire Station No. 1.

Volunteer activities will continue through Saturday and the event will wrap up Sunday morning at 8 o'clock with an annual service at Hattiesburg's 9/11 memorial across from the No. 1 Fire Station.
