With schools closed in response to the coronavirus threat across our country, there are many families whose children may not be receiving enough nutritious meals. In Northeast Mississippi, many individuals and organizations are stepping up to the plate to help their friends and neighbors.
Earlier this week, NEMiss.news was notified by Ms Joy Kimmons, of Potts Camp, MS that she and her sister, Ursula Trammell, decided they wanted to help. Their family is pitching in to help families in their area who may be struggling financially. Their efforts are not restricted to students.
For this week, they and other friends and volunteers, have been supplying, packing and even delivering lunches to those in need. The word was spread throughout Marshall County through word-of-mouth and on social media.
On Monday, Ms Kimmons said they had 100 customers, but on Tuesday they served 300 people. She told NEMiss.news that her group delivered sack lunches to families in Potts Camp, Hickory Flat, Lake Center and other communities on Tuesday.
The word has continued to spread of their “Packed with Love” lunches. The Kimmons family and their many volunteeers will be at the fireworks building in Potts Camp through Friday of this week for come and go pick-ups. Their hours are 12noon to 2:00PM. Arrangements can be made for delivery, if necessary.
