VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
   
                                          
 
                  Bearded Villains of
                   North Mississippi


Yes, they are bearded. No, they are not villainous. The Bearded Villains of North Mississippi are part of a worldwide brotherhood "dedicated to the betterment of mankind through fraternity, charity, and kindness," as expressed in their mission statement. Because bearded men are often seen as the bad guys, these men are working to change the image through the work they do to better their communities. 


The photo above shows the Bearded Villains the first time they partnered with Cami Jo Cares for Easter for Eli at LeBonheur Children's Hospital.


On Saturday, December 14, the Bearded Villains again partnered with Cami Jo Cares when they volunteered at a pancake breakfast at Applebee's in Tupelo.

                       
On Labor Day, the Bearded Villains got together to help out one of their own brothers.

Thank you to the Bearded Villains of North Mississippi for helping the charities in our part of the state make an impact!
