JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the Jones County Fire Council. 

It's that time of the year again when giving is as rewarding as receiving, and some of the Jones County Volunteer Fire Departments are reaching out to their local community to receive donations that will be given to those that need them most.

Glade Volunteer Fire Department held their second-annual canned food drive at the Dollar General on Highway 15 South Sunday afternoon, and plan to continue to do so every weekend until December 17th.

These donations will be collected and distributed to the elderly, particularly shut-ins that are unable to make it to the store on their own, and other individuals in need.

Glade fire department has teamed up with Tuckers Crossing Baptist Church to help make this wonderful time of giving a success. If you're in the area between now and December 17th, stop by the Dollar General between 3PM and 8PM to help support this good cause by donating canned goods. Glade volunteers will be onsite with their fire truck to receive your donations!

Calhoun Volunteer Fire Department will also be hosting a canned food drive on December 10th, 8AM to 12PM at the Dollar General on Indian Springs Road near Highway 84 West.
