KELSEY GRAMMER 'ADOPTS' FAMILIES TORN APART BY TERRORIST TRAGEDY

KELSEY HELPS FAMILIES IN NEED:

Shattered by the deaths of "Frasier" producer/creator David Angell and his wife Lynn -- who perished when terrorists slammed American Airlines Flight 11 into the World Trade Center -- series star Kelsey Grammer is taking action in a BIG way. The actor contacted the American Red Cross and with their help he and wife Camille -- who were introduced by Lynn Angell -- "adopted" five families who lost their breadwinner in the WTC tragedy. He's reaching into his own pocket to set up a fund that will pay their mortgages or rent, all household expenses, schooling costs -- whatever's needed until the families can get back on their feet. And if a wife who's lost her husband now has to go out to work, Kelsey will see to it that her children have after-school or home care -- and he'll continue to foot the bill for that as well. (Cheers, Kelsey!)
