Mississippi Power collects 100 bikes for Salvation Army

Mississippi Power Plant Watson employees collected 100 bikes and helmets for the Salvation Army Angel Tree program.

This morning, Mississippi Power employees dropped off the bikes and helmets at the Salvation Army location in Gulfport.

This is something the plant does every year to help with the Angel Tree. Fifty bikes were collected for girls and 50 for boys. Salvation Army Area Commander Major Jerry Friday said, “If it weren’t for the support of this community, we would not be able to help those individuals who come to us for help especially during the holidays.”

Plant Watson Community Connection President Jeffrey Sykes said, “We look forward to doing it every year and we fundraise all year long. So, we can do this.”

The bikes will be distributed to the families next Monday.
