HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The children at the Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club will soon get some much-needed athletic supplies, thanks to realtors in the Hattiesburg area.

They will be receiving soccer balls, basketballs, baseball gloves, bats and other sports gear collected Thursday by the Hattiesburg Area Association of Realtors during a membership meeting at Southern Oaks and Gardens.

HAAR is gathering the supplies as part of an initiative by realtors nationwide to help Boys & Girls clubs.

Laurel realtors are also collecting athletic gear.

Melissa Key, president of HAAR, said the supplies will be donated to the Boys & Girls Club soon.
