WDAM Viewpoint- Stuff a Truck

March 30, 2011

A great big "Thank You" to everyone who donated non-perishable food items last Thursday in Hattiesburg to Christian Services during our "Stuff a Truck" campaign to help the needy.  This Thursday we will be doing the same thing in Laurel with the goods going to the Christian Food Mission.  One of our employees who helped out last week said they were very moved by what they saw.  You see, it's not mainly the luxury car well to do folks that necessarily do most of the giving.  Most of the people who give are just ordinary folks…many who probably have financial burdens and stresses of their own.  Not unlike the Biblical parable of the widow who gave her last mite.  Of course many who have much do give much in many ways.  But they are not the only ones.  One of the things I have always been proudest of about Mississippi is our reputation for being the most charitable state in the nation.  Yet, in many ways we are the poorest state in the nation.  But our people know what hard times are and have the character to pitch in to help their neighbors who need it.  Many people are going through hard times and it is gratifying to see people of all races and economic levels sacrificing to give to others.  We are running promos throughout the day listing our sponsors and the location.  I'm Jim Cameron and that's today's viewpoint.  As always we want to hear from you.
