The recent death of Biloxi Police Officer Robert McKeithen hit the community hard and many residents wanted to give back to the officer’s family and co-workers.
Biloxi Main Street has been selling special t-shirts to support all Biloxi Police Officers and firefighters. The group sold 500 shirts in less than one day and they had to re-order 300 more.
All profits from these t-shirts go to Officer McKeithen’s family. City of Biloxi Historical Administrator Bill Raymond said, “People felt helpless after what had happened. They didn’t know what to do and this was a chance for them to help out and it wasn’t big. The shirts are $20 so a lot of people just wanted to come do something and it felt like they could help because it was just so overwhelming.”
If you would like to purchase a t-shirt there are still a few left at the Biloxi Visitors Center.
