"Stuff a Truck" brings in food for the hungry

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Hundreds of hungry people in the Hattiesburg area are going to be fed, thanks to the food many of you donated in the "Stuff a Truck" campaign, sponsored by WDAM-TV, Petro Nissan and BCH Company. Friday, the food that was donated was delivered to Christian Services, Inc. in Hattiesburg.

Two truckloads of non-perishable food items were collected in the University Mall parking lot on Thursday. The folks at Christian Services, Inc. say the food will be put to good use.

Next week, it's Laurel's turn to "Stuff a Truck." We'll be collecting canned goods at the Honda of Laurel location at 1717 Old Amy Road, off Highway 15 North on March 31st from 7:30 a.m. until 6 p.m.

Our Laurel "Stuff a Truck" food drive is sponsored by Adcock Pool, Spa and Billiards and Honda of Laurel.
