PEARL, Miss. (WJTV) — A Texas city is receiving a truck load of donations that were collected in Pearl
“We’re going to be delivering them into Katy, Texas,” said Dwight Brown, who volunteered to drive the 18-wheeler full of items to Texas.
He left Mississippi around 4 a.m. to make the trip.
“This wouldn’t have been possible if one of our own citizens hadn’t walked in to our police department and said, “Hey this what I got and this is what I’m going to do,'” Pearl Police Lt. Brian McGairty said.
Dwight is working with a church in Katy that will help distribute the items.
Pearl Police said they are working with other agencies to get he remaining donations to Texas.
