VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT
                                              
             WEAR IT WELL


As you may have heard, the Salvation Army in Tupelo has been hard at work renovating the kitchen. That's the good news. The bad news is that the process has made feeding the hungry in the Tupelo area difficult. Fortunately, our community is filled with people who want to step up to the plate and make a difference. Several businesses, churches, and organizations were called on to help out, and every one contacted said, "Yes! Tell us what to do and we will do it."


Wear It Well was one such group. With the help of several volunteers, they were able to provide lunch for almost 100 people. 



The Salvation Army expressed their gratitude to these and all the volunteers who have made sure the homeless and food-insecure individuals in our community are receiving a good meal while the kitchen renovations are in progress. Volunteer Northeast Mississippi joins the Salvation Army in saying THANK YOU!
