HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Members of the Lamar County Sheriff's Department took time out of their day to spread a little Christmas joy. Santa Clause and Lamar County officers joined fores to pass out toys donated from the community.
Major Brad Weathers shares how the spirit of Hattiesburg flourishes with care for the community, "For us to give back to the community that's been good to us this year. The Hattiesburg area as a whole has gone through a lot, law enforcement has gone through a lot. We thought it was good that we have their support and we thought it was a good thing to do for Christmas, to give back to the kids."
The department hopes to continue the tradition of giving back to the community for years to come.
