Local Red Cross volunteers to help Irene victims

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Volunteers from the South Mississippi Chapter of the American Red Cross have already made their way to the east coast to help any victims of Hurricane Irene. Four volunteers from the Hattiesburg-area are in Raleigh, North Carolina and are preparing to assist victims with emergency food, shelter and emotional support.

Two emergency response vehicles from the chapter have also been driven to the staging area in Raleigh.

"Other chapters throughout the state and the southeastern region are pitching in to help out a little bit as well," said Brett Montague, manager of readiness and response for the South Mississippi Chapter of the American Red Cross. 

If you'd like to make a donation to the American Red Cross, you can call 1-800-RED-CROSS, go online to www.redcross.org, or text Red Cross to 9099 on your cellular phone.  That text will donate $10 to the American Red Cross.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
