A kind Gesture Grows into a Mission of Service... Firefighters are going to benefit from the start of this foundation. As State Fire Marshal, I think Barry has an excellent idea, and I would like to see the Feed the Firefighters Foundation become a reality in North Carolina.

Short-order help... Cafe gets award, thanks for Sep. 11 efforts. After Sept. 11, Cary restaurant owner Barry Doyle started a state-wide fundraising campaign for New York firefighters and their families.

Feeding firefighters beefs up diner's fame! But word of Doyle's good deed spread quickly, and the firefighters have been looking out for Barry's Cafe ever since-and vice versa.
