Viewpoint: Hattiesburg Food Drive

First, all of us at WDAM would like to thank all our friends in Laurel for the tremendous response for the Food Drive that benefited Laurel’s Christian Food Mission two weeks ago.

 Now, we ask all you caring people in the Greater Hattiesburg area to step up and help make this next Food Drive even more successful yet. This Wednesday, March 25, WDAM, Grand Bank, and Advantage Suzuki will be collecting non-perishable food items to benefit Christian Services in Hattiesburg.  Starting at 7:30 a.m. and going until 6:00 p.m., rain or shine, WDAM will be at the Grand Bank branch located on the corner of 28th Avenue and Lincoln Road ready to take your contributions to “Stuff a Truck” for Christian Services. Through programs like the Soup Kitchen, Operation Compassion, and Meals on Wheels…Christian Services provides over One-Thousand meals a day to people in need.  Other services assist lower income families with financial education and support…another educational program helps people learn to overcome addiction problems.  These are just a few of the 15 or so programs that this wonder Christian based operation provides to our community. So…we again ask for your help…to help us give support to the ones that help so many right here in our own back yard.  Only you can make this event a success.  Thanks in advance for your caring and acting. 

I’m Jim Cameron for Seven on Your Side…write and let us know what’s on your mind.

    "Families make up the community, parents make up the community," said Boney.  "We know, through research, when the community and parents are involved in schools, students perform better." "It's an exciting time," Boney said.  "We want parents to know we need them to be involved and we want students to know we are headed for success and we will have a good school year."
