Earth Day Pier Walk

Since 2012, the family of late Gulfport Mayor Ken Combs Sr. hosted the Earth Day Pier Walk, collecting canned goods and monetary donations to help the Feed my Sheep program.

This come and go event asked the public to donate ten canned goods or cash donations. The objective for the Combs family was to fill the entire sidewalk from the pier to the parking lot with goods.

Event Coordinator Ken Combs Jr. wanted locals to donate in memory of their loved ones like his father. “It means a lot. It’s just something good to do, to help others and in the process honor the memory of your loved one.”

For their efforts, locals received plants and mulch to bring home to plant something in honor of someone they lost.
