VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
   
                                          
 
           TORNADO CLEAN-UP
                 VOLUNTEERS


Northeast Mississippi was once again the victim of Mother Nature. On Monday, December 16, severe storms, including at least one tornado, damaged homes and downed trees in Union, Lee, and Tishomingo Counties.

And once again, volunteers stepped up and began clearing debris and tarping roofs almost immediately.

Then on Saturday, December 21, more than 100 Northeast Mississippi residents, organizations, companies, and officials on the state and local levels converged on Guntown, which suffered significant damage, to volunteer in clean-up efforts. Homes on Colt Lane were some of the hardest hit, and Lighthouse Baptist Church was destroyed. In all, about 70 homes received damage, but the city of Guntown was quick to provide shelter and resources to the residents affected by the storm.

Thank you to all the volunteers who have already assisted in clean-up efforts and those who continue to do so.

 





     FEATURED VOLUNTEER
           OPPORTUNITIES


MUTEH (Mississippi United to End Homelessness) is working diligently to house the homeless population and provide them with resources to begin living a more stable, productive life. Often these newly-housed individuals move into a home without any of the essentials that are necessary to maintain a clean, safe, suitable living space. For that reason, MUTEH is asking for volunteers to assemble and donate Welcome Home Baskets. Click here for more information.

North Mississippi Medical Center Cancer Care can always use donations for the HOPE Food Pantry. Click
