Bay Saint Louis, MS – The 100 WOMEN DBA and Christ Episcopal Church provided food bags for youth in need on Saturday, August 29, 2020 at the following locations: 100 Men Hall, Waveland Public Library, Kiln Public Library, and Pearlington Public Library. The bags were available after 10AM at the front of each institution.

Rachel Dangermond, Director of 100 Men Hall, said, “August 292020 is the 15th year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. What we learned from that tragedy is where systems failed us, our community saved us. The outpouring of love from neighbors and strangers to those in need was overwhelming and crossed all racial, political, and other boundaries set up to keep us apart. Instead of focusing on what happened then, let’s focus on who needs us now. Service is our highest calling.”

The food bags contained nonperishable items that could easily be prepared by youth, personal care items such as shampoo/lotion, and notes of encouragement from the NAACP Youth & College Division teens.

Please take what you need and leave the rest.

Donations were accepted until Friday, August 28.
