HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Children's Home Services has received a donation from the Southern Miss National Pan-Hellenic Council. 

The NPHC donated $1,000 to the organization. Each year the NPHC chooses a local organization to benefit. 

The nine sororities and fraternities work together during NPHC Greek Week to raise money.

The NPHC says they chose this organization because it faces a $70,000 deficit due to budget cuts from different grants. They say they hope the donation serves as an example for others to help turn the Children's Home Services around.

"It's our hope that this donation public donation will give awareness to the community about the deficit that the shelter is facing and just to provide more volunteers for the shelter," said NPHC advisor Valencia Wells.
