Help Us Give Back To One Of Our Volunteers

We usually don't spotlight just one Katrina volunteer because so many individuals have done so much, but today I want to speak about C.C White of New Jersey who came down to help Hancock County.

She was only going to stay a few weeks but then felt a calling to help the residents of the coast.

"I went home gave the land lord his keys and told him I am going back to Mississippi because that is where they need some help. And I brought everything I owned in a U-haul truck and give it out," White remembers

Since 2005 Miss White has traveled the country collecting food, clothing and other needed items for residents of Hancock County.

Her loving generosity has helped hundreds of families get back on their feet, but things have changed for White. A stroke has left her paralyzed on one side and the loss of eye sight in one eye.

However, White is not complaining.

"We may be out of commission for a few minutes, but I am not done, for God brought me down here on his mission. I am not done," White says. 

Now, it's our turn to help White.

We hope agencies such as Habitat for Humanity and other non-profit groups and individuals will help Miss White find a place to stay and help her get back on her feet.

She was willing to help us out in our greatest time of need. Surely we can do the same for her.

Contributions can be made at any Hancock Bank for White.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
