HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A Hattiesburg restaurant is making an extra effort to support an organization which helps provide affordable housing in our area. Friday morning, the Glory Bound Gyro Co. presented a $2,500 check to the Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity.

The donation matches the amount of money that was raised during an annual restaurant tour in the spring.

Since 1990, the Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity has partnered with deserving families to build 60 affordable homes in the Hub City area.

"In the spring, we have a restaurant tour and this year, Glory Bound agreed to match all the donations from every restaurant who gave 10 or 15 percent of the day's sales to Habitat and they agreed to match that, up to $2,500 dollars," said Laura Goodwin-Wright, resource development and communitcations manager for the Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity.

"Habitat's an amazing organization that we've had the pleasure of working with for probably three years now," said Will Taylor, co-owner of Glory Bound Gyro Co. "And just anything they really need, they come to us and we help out in any way we can," he said.

The Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity will dedicate its 61st home later this month.
