Nearly 600 Jackson County families in need given meals
During times of need, the Gulf Coast is known to stick together and help our neighbors. Today was a great example of that.
Today around 60 volunteers teamed up to feed nearly 600 Jackson County families who are a part of the head start program.
The families received bags filled with all kinds of food including frozen meat, bread, sides, and even desserts.
This was all done by a new committee called The Jackson County Crisis Response Team and this was their first project. United Way Jackson and George County President Tee McCovey said, “In Jackson County, we have always been known as the community that comes together in the midst of a crisis. So, we had some phone conversations with several different people in the community and we said ‘hey, let’s form a committee, let’s get a team together.’”
Members of the Jackson County Crisis Response Team tell News 25 they are looking ahead to the hurricane season and how they will be able to help if a storm hits.
