Thankful volunteers prepare to feed the needy

Posted: Updated:
BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

November is here.  And Harrison County's law enforcement community has turned its attention to its 24th annual Feed the Needy drive.

This Thanksgiving, four police departments and the Harrison County Sheriff's Department will deliver a hot meal and fellowship to less fortunate members of the community.

If you know somebody who's homebound, or your friends with an elderly neighbor who may be alone on Thanksgiving, contact Feed the Needy organizers.  They're looking for names, addresses and phone numbers of those needy neighbors.  They also need to know how many meals should be delivered to each home.

Here's a list of police department phone numbers you should contact:

Biloxi 385-3033; Gulfport 868-5950; D'Iberville 396-4252; Pass Christian 452-3302; and Harrison County 896-0606.

A news release from Feed the Needy organizer Diane Shoemake says the sheriff and the county's police chiefs "would like to thank those who have made donations in the past and remind the public that they can make donations through the office at the Harrison County Sheriff's Office."

If you'd like to volunteers to prepare holiday meals on Thanksgiving, you should arrive at the Lyman Community Center on Highway 49 at 8:00 that morning.
