Water Worries: Community pulls together for children’s home

by Amy McCullough

Published: January 12,2010

The community has really pulled together to help the over 80 children who reside in the care of Mississippi Children’s Home Services located on N. West St.

According to Peary Forrest, Facilities Manager at MCHS, “We keep several days of drinking water on hand, which we are replenishing daily. For the sanitary needs of the children, we are bringing in water from Richland with help from the local Fire Department. In addition, Fountain Construction has volunteered to bring  portable showers to us that are built into an 18 wheeler which we expect to be delivered Tuesday afternoon. As a back up plan, we have also been invited to use showers of the local YMCA’s that have water.”
