JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
Jackson County may be thousands of miles away from the battered East Coast, but that's not stopping city and county leaders from collecting much needed relief supplies to help those Sandy victims who have lost everything.
Dozens of canned goods, coats, and other relief supplies are stacking up across Jackson County for those residents in New Jersey struggling to get back on their feet.
"This is a unified effort; the four cities, the county board of supervisors, the fire departments are all working together to make this happen," Supervisor John McKay said.
"If you have lived on this coast all your life you what it means to get help and show others that you care. So anyone that lives on the coast should be giving back," Moss Point Mayor Aneice Liddell said.
Wednesday's biggest delivery came from St. Paul United Methodist Church members in Moss Point. They donated hundreds of dollars worth of cleaning supplies and toiletries.
Pastor Robert Pittman said giving is just the right thing to do, and he's proud the church stepped up and helped.
"The scripture tells us it is better to give than to receive. Anytime you have an opportunity to be the ones that are giving blessing than receiving, it is just a joy," Pittman said.
Although a lot has been collected so far, there are still some empty boxes that need to be filled. City and county leaders are calling on more folks to dig deep in their pockets and give.
"You don't have to give a million dollars, anything you give is a help. So, if you have $10 of supplies that is $10 of supplies for somebody that don't have," Liddell said.
"You can drop off your goods up until noon on Friday. Then we as a county will collect them all, bring them to F&H trucking, consolidate them, pack them, and send them to New Jersey," McKay said.
Supervisor McKay said the county is accepting relief supplies at all the local fire stations. Moss Point is asking residents to drop off a donation at the old city hall building.
