  • Toothbrushes
  • Foot Powder
  • Reading Glasses
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Men & Women’s Underwear all sizes

In preparations for the Angel Tree Program the Social Service Coordinator, Stacy Crandle, asks to help spread the word that three Life Skills classes must be attended by those seeking to receiving Christmas assistance this year in Harrison County.  Classes are free and available for anyone interested, even if not receiving assistance. Visit The Salvation Army’s webpage for a list of days and times still available for Life Skills classes.

“Life Skills classes are offered, for free, in hopes that the teachings will spark students to  better themselves and for those receiving assistance, to be lifted up to one day no longer need assistance”, says Stacy Crandle, Social Service Coordinator.

To volunteer or donate for the Fresh and Clean Program or for more information about Life Skills classes call 228-374-8301.
