Southern Cross needs painting help Saturday at their shelter

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The Southern Cross Animal Rescue in Jones County is asking for help from the community to paint the inside and outside of their shelter Saturday.

Thanks to a large donation from Community Bank, Southern Cross purchased the facility on Highway 184 in the Powers Community last fall and with help and donations from the community, they have made steady progress towards converting it to a shelter.

Volunteers are needed Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. If anyone has a ladder that can be used for painting, they are asking that you bring it. For those who don't want to paint, there are other things that can be done like help care for the animals while the painting is going on.

"We need some manpower, you don't need to be an expert to pick up a brush for a couple of hours or an hour," said Shannon Bates, SCAR. "Anything you can do to help would be great.

Bates says they are also looking for donations of paint and painting materials. The can be dropped of at the shelter at 1712 Highway 184 in Powers. Monetary donations can be made at the Southern Cross Animal Rescue facebook page using the PayPal link. To donate for the painting project, specify painting or renovations.
