The CCCE and the McCarty Center teamed up with the Hattiesburg Foster Grandparent Program to collect and distribute clothing and non-perishable food items for low-income households. Through their efforts more than 100 families, including 240 children, received donations of food and clothing in time for the holiday season. (University Communications photo by David Tisdale)
