The volunteers at Christian Services in Hattiesburg were busy getting ready for an annual Birthday Party for Jesus.
The party is Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Ben McNair Center next to Hattiesburg High School. Over 500 children and parents are expected to attend. The program will feature an informative program, free lunch for everyone, and toys and goody bags for children.
All the toys for the party were donated by residents, organizations, and businesses in the community.
"This community is wonderful and responds well to God's call to help those less fortunate and it's been from people from across the city," said Cookie Prout, Christian Services.
