HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Volunteers from our area and elsewhere are continuing to help clean up the Hub City in the wake of the Feb. 10 tornado. Saturday, you could find lots of folks lending a hand in storm-ravaged parts of Hattiesburg.

One group from First Missionary Baptist Church in Gulfport delivered food and baby supplies to homes in the 4th Street area. 

"Knowing that people have suffered trauma and experienced loss, we want to be a blessing to those in community," said Virginia Adolph, a member of the church.     

Elsewhere, members of the Ruff Ryders Motorcycle Club joined forces with students from N.R. Burger Middle School to sweep up debris near E. 7th street.

"People are coming together and working together to get Hattiesburg back on its feet as soon as possible," said Shonta Russell, a member of the club.

All the clean-up efforts are appreciated by city officials including Mayor Johnny Dupree.

"It's awonderful thing that people have such hearts that are willing, even on a Saturday, to come out here and do this," Dupree said.
