Watson gala brings in toys for needy kids

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg lawmaker treated his constituents to an early, annual Christmas gathering and at the same time, helped some needy children in the Pine Belt.

Representative Percy Watson hosted his annual, appreciation gala Saturday night at the Lake Terrace Convention Center. He invited hundreds of folks to celebrate the holidays and bring with them a toy for a child.

They were donated to Christian Services and the Jesse L. Brown Elks Lodge, which will distribute them to needy families next week.
