Working together to Feed the Needy

The Biloxi Police Department, along with Harrison County public safety agencies and donors, are working together to once again host “Feed the Needy,” a program to deliver Thanksgiving Day meals to the homes of the less fortunate.

Meals – which will be delivered – must be requested by 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 22.

Those interested should contact their respective law enforcement agency:

— Biloxi Police, 228-385-3033

— D’Iberville Police, 228-396-4252

— Gulfport Police, 228-868-5703

— Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, 228-896-0606

— Long Beach Police, 228-865-1981

— Pass Christian Police, 228-452-3301

The Feed the Needy Program has grown from feeding a few people to providing over 1,000 meals for those in need and is only possible through generous donations and local volunteers. They have kept this program going for 34 years.
