Topsham — The American Legion Post 202 is hosting their 6th annual winter classic softball charity event in Topsham.
Organizers of the fundraiser say 5 different teams from across the state showed up to support the cause hoping to encourage people who are watching to donate money towards fighting the Veteran homeless problem.
"To get people involved to get people excited and to actually come out and get out of your comfort zone and to get off your couch and to come outside in the winter and be part of something bigger than yourself, be part of the solution, let's do this. We can get Veterans off the streets," says Nicolas Hamlin, former commander of the American Legion Post 202.
The event had raised nearly $4,000 in donations so far. This year the money will to go "Maine Veterans in Need" which offers resources to Vets during an emergency.
