Motorcycle riders here on the Southcoast are doing their part every year to help troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Members of the national non-profit group, Homes for Our Troops, are organizing their Fifth Annual Motorcycle "Ride for The Troops" through Dartmouth on Sunday, September 23. All the money raised will go towards building homes for severely injured vets to help them rebuild their lives. Local organizer, Jim Picanzo, join's Jim Phillips on this week's Townsquare Sunday program to discuss the fundraiser, and what ‘Homes for Our Troops’ is all about.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
