Gulfport police looking for volunteers
The Gulfport Police Department is asking for your help with tomorrow’s Feed the Needy Thanksgiving Program.
The department is in need of volunteers for the assembly line to provide the food to those in need. Plus 2,200 orders need to be delivered to those who signed up for the meals.
If you are interested you can meet Gulfport police at the Lyman Community Center at 8 a.m. and the entire process usually takes about two hours.
Even if you can’t deliver or help prepare the food, Lt. Josh Bromen tells News 25 there are other ways you can assist. “Every little bit helps. If it’s just five or ten dollars here or there, you’ve actually feed three people. We will also have donation boxes set up tomorrow. So, if you just want to stop by and give a monetary donation or spend some of your time there every little bit helps.”
One hundred percent of this program runs on donations so Gulfport police ask that you show support if you’re able to.
Some families on the Coast actually consider this as a Thanksgiving tradition.
