Mississippi Power volunteers give back on MLK Day

Volunteers from Mississippi Power decided to treat MLK Day as a day on instead of a day off.
For many years, now the employees at Mississippi Power have spent MLK Day serving their community and this year was no different.
They spent the day filling beds, building a hoop house, and a greenhouse at 34th Street Wholistic Gardens and Education Center in Gulfport.
The group started the project at 34th Gardens last year. Volunteers tell News 25 that they are excited to continue the work this year. Mississippi Power President Anthony Wilson said, “It’s something that our employees really look forward to and I think one of Dr. King’s views and one of his major tenants was to make the community better and work together to make something good happen and I think that aligns really well with our company and our view about trying to make the communities that we serve better places to live, work, and play.”
This is only one of many other acts of service that Mississippi Power volunteers are doing throughout the community.
