USM Athletes help United Way

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Some Southern Miss athletes joined a new team for a time today...the United Way. Football players, cheerleaders and others gathered at Trustmark Bank's University Branch on Hardy Street to raise money for that organization.

For a donation, customers, and some bank employees, got autographs or photos taken with the Golden Eagles stars.

The money raised will go toward the United Way's current campaign for its 21 partner agencies.
