Community Responds to Need
Remember back in June when I reported to you the theft of over $3,000 worth of computer equipment from the Biloxi Independent living Center, LIFE? If you will remember, the thief or thieves cut a hole in the ceiling tile and dropped in to the offices to make their heist.
Not only did I report it to you. It made me so mad that I also reported it to my friends at WLOX-TV who aired a segment about the theft on the news. Now, things are looking much better at LIFE! New computer equipment and financial contributions have put the important non-profit in a better place.
“We have been greatly blessed,” says Cindy Singletary, LIFE’s Independent Living Specialist. “We have had donations of a few computers and monetary donations from generous companies and individuals. We also have a few donations in the works that would allow us to be fully recovered. The generosity has been amazing, and we cannot fully express our gratitude. It is amazing how a select individual/group’s selfish act can spur the community’s nature of giving and support.”
Huntington Ingalls Industries, Gulf Coast Yellow Cab and multiple private donors have come to LIFE’s aid. If you meant to give but haven’t gotten around to it, mail or take a check, money order or cash to LIFE of Mississippi, 2030 Pass Road, Suite C, Biloxi, MS 39531.
