Volunteers give back at 33nd annual Feed the Needy Program

Harrison County police and sheriff’s officials hosted its 33rd annual Feed the Needy this weekend.

Over 300 volunteers showed up to the Lyman Community Center to help fix plates and deliver meals. This year 1,300 meals were delivered.

Six police departments helped out; each assigned a specific duty. The Feed the Needy Program started in 1988.

Each plate was filled with turkey, ham, dressing, a roll, greens, and a piece of pie.

The program does this every year for Christmas and Thanksgiving. Event Coordinator Jimmy Johnson said, “There’s always a need and you know, that need has to be met, and first of all, your heart has gotta be in it. You wanna be willing to serve and share. That’s what it is all about. That’s what Christmas is all about is serving and sharing.”

Volunteers are always needed and you can help by just showing up on Thanksgiving or Christmas morning at the Lyman Community Center.
