Feed the Needy opening registration for Christmas applications
Harrison County law enforcement agencies have banded together to deliver 1500 meals on Thanksgiving. With the holiday now just three days away, they’re already looking ahead to Christmas!
Applications for the Christmas Feed the Needy program will open one week from today on Monday, November 28. The last day to register will be Monday, December 12.
“Every agency knows of families and find out from other families about those that are either sheltered in home and can’t get out, elderly, or disabled,” Capt. Tom Goldsworthy of the Biloxi Police Department points out. “This is one way to be able to still celebrate Thanksgiving and get to interact with the community and with officers.”
Each police station is in charge of a different task when it comes to organizing, cooking, and ordering the food.
The program has been helping those in need in Harrison County for more than 33 years.
