HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - A local charity needs your help to help others.
The Salvation Army feeds thousands of people every year, but they can't do that without donations.
As the holiday season nears, organized are asking residents to help however they can.
"We always have a flood number of people seeking assistance especially with food this time of year," said Lt. Stacey Connelly with the Salvation Army. "So we are just asking those in the Pine Belt if they don't mind to dig in their cupboards or if they are out shopping pick up a few extra can goods and bring it by."
