Pine Belt 360 connects churches and schools

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Pine Belt 360 in Hattiesburg is wanting churches in the community to partner with local schools to help meet some of the school's needs.

Executive Director Van Jones said many school districts don't always have the resources or time to make sure that everything in all their schools are maintained.

Jones said by building a partnership with the community many schools can better succeed.

Jones added, "It was a great success last year. We had over a 130 volunteers and we were in 15 schools in three counties, so we look forward to tripling that and doing great and grand things."

Jones said it is important that Pine Belt 360 be the hands and feet of Jesus.

If you are interested in connecting with the organization call (601) 310-1368.
