Lamar Alternative School students raise money for United Way

PURVIS, MS (WDAM) - Students from the Lamar County Alternative School served as waiters at a Purvis restaurant Wednesday to raise money for the United Way.

The four students served as hosts, seating customers, and delivered food and drinks over the lunch hour at the The Shack Seafood and Grill. Many local dignitaries, political candidates, and community members were invited to the fundraiser. All the proceeds and tips the students raised are going to the United Way.
