Breadbasket Ministry gets large donation

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg food ministry is the recipient of thousands of cans of food that one Lamar County school has collected for the holidays. Today, the Breadbasket Ministry got about 4,000 cans of food that were collected by 4th and 5th graders at Oak Grove Upper Elementary School.

It's the 5th year the children have collected food for that ministry, which has been helping needy families in the Hattiesburg area for 30 years.

Ministry volunteers say the food collected will help about 200 families.
