Holiday Giving Down

Some coast charities are feeling the same financial strains as those in other parts of the country. In a national ABC news poll half of the charities reported lower donations this year.

The director of the Seashore Mission Church in Biloxi says it is struggling. The church helps out area homeless with things like meals and toiletries.

Reverend Al Wallace says the main problem is that the building is old and in need a lot of work.

Reverend Al Wallace asks that people remember the mission during the holiday season and make donations.

January first, homeless people looking to escape the cold will be allowed to stay at the church overnight.

Among other things, Reverend Wallace is asking the public for additional blankets and to become volunteers.
