HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) - A Hattiesburg church has presented a special gift to a Hub City-based, non-profit service organization.

Thursday, Heritage United Methodist Church donated $2,500 to Recover, Rebuild, Restore Southeast Mississippi (R3SM).

She also says Heritage UMC has supported the organization in other ways in the past.
