Five truckloads of food collected at Laurel Fill-A-Truck

LAUREL, MS (WDAM) - The Jones County community turned out in a big way this weekend to help support a local soup kitchen and food pantry.

Organizers of the annual “Fill-A-Truck” food drive say people donated five truckloads of non-perishaable food for the Good Samaritan Center.

That event was held Friday and Saturday at the Laurel Walmart.

It was also hosted in memory of former Laurel Police Chief Tyrone Stewart, who died earlier this year.
