Over the weekend, tornados ripped through communities in Southern Mississippi leaving behind a pathway of destruction. The University of Mississippi Law School Student Body has started a relief effort that will run from Jan. 23 through Friday, Feb. 3.
As a Hattiesburg native, president of the LSSB, Gregory Alston knew that he couldn’t sit by and watch without helping his community.
“Being a native of Hattiesburg and being able to see the damage first-hand during clean up efforts that I was able to participate in, the city of Hattiesburg and the surrounding areas need all the help they can get,” Alston said. “I am excited the law school student body will be able to help the people of South Mississippi who not only lost loved ones but lost their homes this past weekend.”
The items being collected are:
-Manual can openers-Zip Lock Baggies
-Zip Lock Baggies
-Cleaning Supplies: Pinesol, Lysol, Trash Bags, etc
-Pet Food and Supplies
Donations can be taken to the Atrium of the University of Mississippi School of Law between 8 a.m and 5 p.m.
