JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

The volunteer firefighting community in Jones County is hitting the softball field this weekend to help one of their own who needs a liver transplant.  

Firefighters are hosting a co-ed softball tournament Saturday to benefit longtime Sharon Community firefighter Cindy Shoemake. 

It will be held beginning at 8 a.m. at Laurel's Wooten Legion Sports Complex.

Shoemake has been a volunteer firefighter for nearly 20 years and was the first woman in Jones County to receive Level 2 firefighter certification. 

So far, 11 teams have registered to take part. 

The event will also feature food and a raffle.  T-shirts will also be sold.
