HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A member of the world famous Harlem Globetrotters visited the Hub City Friday to lend a hand to victims of the Feb. 10 tornado.

Tay "Firefly" Fisher handed out Salvation Army food boxes and cleaning kits to residents of neighborhoods near Hattiesburg High School.

Fisher and the rest of the Globetrotters will play a game next Wednesday night at Reed Green Coliseum on the Southern Miss campus.

"We know that you guys were affected by the tornado on Sunday, so it's important for the Globetrotters to come here, show a little love, help out as best as possible," Fisher said.

Fisher, who was a star player at Siena College, has been with the Globetrotters for four years.
