Two local businesses helped make Christmas a little more special for several local needy families last week.

Country Catfish and Steakhouse provided meals for needy area residents on Monday, December 22. Kannu, owner of the restaurant located off Highway 28 in Hazlehurst, members of his family and the staff of the eatery served over 500 plates at no charge to the recipients.

Additionally, Pine Crest Guest Home held its first annual toy drive for local needy children. Ron Guins, owner and operator of Pine Crest and The Therapy Center, and his staff delivered over 60 toys on Tuesday, December 23 to several children in Hazlehurst. The toys were donated by local residents

Both efforts proved that the true spirit of Christmas is alive and well in Hazlehurst, MS.
