Angels Need Your Help

Layoffs in Jackson County are forcing hundreds of families to seek financial help for the first time to get through holidays. The Salvation Army of Jackson County has received double the request for its Angel Tree program this year.

The Angel tree helps needy families provide Christmas gifts for children, through donations from the community. This year the Salvation Army is trying to get more than 15 hundred children a gift for Christmas morning. The Angel tree will run through December 16th.

If you're interested in helping the tree is set up at Singing River Mall in Gautier.
