Double amputee dedicates time to Salvation Army during Christmas season

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Funds raised by bell ringers around the holidays help the Salvation Army keep their doors open year round.

For a Hattiesburg woman, this is the perfect way to help during the season of giving.

"I thought this would be a good way to serve the Lord and help somebody," said Ella Jackson.

Jackson is a double amputee and dialysis patient.

"I have been on dialysis for ten years. Things seem to be going good and my health is good," said Jackson. "So, I figured I could sit out here and do this."

On Wednesday, Jackson rang the bell for four hours to remind others to keep the Christ in Christmas. She said she continues to live by Luke 3:41.

"Do to other as you would have them do to you," said Jackson.

Jackson believes life come full circle through serving others.

Volunteers are still needed for this holiday season.
