United Way Reopens Flood Damaged Pascagoula Office

Finding help from the United Way of Jackson & George Counties got a bit easier Tuesday. The organization reopened its office in Pascagoula.

Katrina's floodwaters damaged nearly everything inside the building on Magnolia Street. But thanks to workers from Northrop Grumman Ship Systems and other local volunteers, the United Way can once again serve the public.

"The opening is symbolic. I think it is a statement that The United Way had to rebuild like the community it serves. And just like our community we have been successful. We kept our head up and we pulled back together," Chapter President Chris Anderson said.

The United Way is open Monday through Thursday from 8am to 5pm and on Fridays from 8am to 4pm. Click here to learn more about the United Way of Jackson & George Counties.
