Fred's to give checks to HPD and HFD

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - This time of year there is always someone helping to make the season brighter for those less fortunate, and this year it was the employees of Fred's on Broadway Drive in Hattiesburg.

They raised money to give to the Hattiesburg Police Department and the Hattiesburg Fire Department. Both department representatives say the money will go towards helping children at the Domestic Abuse Children's Shelter, The Salvation Army's Angel Tree and the Fire Department's Benevolent Association.
