Feed the Needy needs volunteers to help deliver

Feed the Needy is gearing up to deliver 1,500 meals on Thanksgiving Day — and they could use your help.

Law enforcement agencies in Harrison County are spearheading the effort — taking donations and signing up people to receive the meals that are boxed up and delivered Thanksgiving morning.

Last year, the group sent out more than 1,000 meals. This year, they topped that mark by almost 500.

But that also means they need some help getting those meals to those who might otherwise go hungry on Thanksgiving.

Capt. Tom Goldswothy With Biloxi Police says volunteers are still needed to help deliver the meals.

Here’s the breakdown on the meals that will be delivered by each agency:

  • Biloxi Police Department (170 Porter Avenue) 625 meals
  • D’Iberville Police Department (11290 Lamey Bridge Road) 310 meals
  • Gulfport Police Department (Lyman Community Center) 406 meals
  • Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, 84 meals
  • Long Beach Police Department, 45 meals
  • Pass Christian Police Department, 27 meals

If you can help in your community, please call your local police department — or just show up at the venue and tell them you’re there to volunteer.

They’ll definitely put you to work!
