Pastor Leonard Walker at New Mt Elem Church is asking for bottled water donations to add to their collections for Jackson residents suffering the water crisis.
“We’ve got two trucks and a trailer out here, just trying to help out any way we can,” Pastor Walker said.
Walker says that he and some church members will be at the church, located at 3014 Wisconsin Avenue, until around noon today collecting water.
“Vicksburg is known to be generous. I’ve been doing this for about 15 years now and Vicksburg always comes through, and we sure appreciate it,” he said.
If you are able, please drop off sealed bottles or jugs of drinking water this morning. Pastor Walker is planning to personally deliver the supplies this afternoon.See a typo? Report it here.
