As families gather around their Christmas Trees Christmas morning about 250 gather under a viaduct on John Street in Bridgeport for their holiday cheer.    Ann Marie Tarinelli and a group called Under The Viaduct have been been e-mailing wish lists gathering gifts requested by those much less fortunate.  Ann Marie has been providing a meal once a month, she use to do it monthly but it go to be too much she said.   Some of these people need the basic of necessities we all take for granted, like socks, toothpaste a blanket,  even toilet paper.  If you would like to help Ann Marie you can call her at 203-268-5553  or drop off the basic needs at her home at 18 Country Lane in Trumbull.
