New playground coming to children's shelter

HARRISON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - The youth court children's shelter in Harrison County is getting some new playground equipment thanks to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce.

The Leadership Gulf Coast class of 2016 presented a check to youth court Judge Margaret Alfonso during Monday's Harrison County Board of Supervisors meeting.

The donation of more than $3,600 will go toward the purchase of new swing sets at the shelter.

"The board is wonderful in providing us with the necessities, but the extras are what we depend on for folks like you," Alfonso said.

The Leadership Gulf Coast group is challenging other organizations to make a similar donation.
