Virtual Nonprofit Fair
Thursday, September 17

This year's Nonprofit Fair will be virtual, and we are so excited about the opportunities a remote event offers!

First, all the videos that have been recorded by our nonprofits will be posted on our website. If your agency did not record a video through the zoom format we set up, please feel free to make your own and send it to by 5:00 Tuesday, September 15. 

On Thursday, September 17, the videos will go live AND we will host two Facebook Live events - at 3:00 and 8:00. We will discuss the impact volunteers make, how to utilize the volunteer hub, and how to find out more about the nonprofits in our area. In addition we will have door prizes and the opportunity to answer questions from viewers.

Please help us promote the Nonprofit Fair by posting this graphic on your social media. With your help we can be assured of a very successful event!

         MS Project Package

In 2001 Rickey Pope retired from the military. Three years later he started a nonprofit to provide a little bit of home to the troops overseas. Since that time, MS Project Package, which operates out of Corinth and Southaven, has sent thousands upon thousands of care packages to the men and women stationed on the other side of the world.

All year long MS Project Package collects donations of items from a wish list created by soldiers and money to pay shipping costs. On average 1,000 packages go out each month, and each one costs approximately $11 to mail. 

For more information about this outstanding nonprofit, visit their website or their Facebook page. You can also contact Rickey Pope directly at 662-284-8108 or

Thanks to Rickey and everyone at MS Project Package for supporting our troops overseas!
