Many people in Mississippi are suffering today because of tornadoes that swept through the state December 23rd. Thursday WLOX is joining hands with our fellow television stations in Hattiesburg, Jackson and Memphis in a coordinated telethon to raise money for those in need.
There are entire neighborhoods in Marion, Jones, and Lamar counties in which most every home was destroyed leaving so many homeless. All day Thursday, WLOX will report on the problems and how you can help in this effort called: Mississippi Tornado Relief: Hope, Help and Healing.
Mississippi coastal residents certainly know what it feels like to lose everything to a storm. We hope you will consider donating to the Pine Belt Community Foundation to help with the healing. To donate call 1-844-281-5609 or text HOPE to 601777l.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to email@example.com.
