Hattiesburg Jaycees donate school supplies to foster children

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Hattiesburg Jaycees collected donations and school supplies for foster children in Forrest County.

Supplies for one hundred students will be delivered Thursday morning to the Department of Human Services for distribution to area foster children.

After learning that DHS had reduced it's funding in this area and recognizing a need for supplies, the Jaycees immediately began their campaign for donations. They plan to start collecting earlier next year and hope to be able to help even more children.
