Heritage Vision Center owners Kevin and Wanda Harrison of Hattiesburg recently presented a $2,000 donation to the Children's Center for Communication and Development at The University of Southern Mississippi.

The Harrisons began contributing to the Children's Center along with their late daughter, Rebekah Harrison, three years ago. They continue to donate money from sales of their children's eyeglasses throughout the year and have charity boxes set out at their store for the Children’s Center to increase the funds in an endowment set up in Rebekah's honor.
