PEARL, MS (WLBT) - A local furniture store rewards an elderly couple Monday for their years of dedication to helping others in the community.
Miskelly Furniture delivered a brand new sofa, recliner and bed to Jeff and Wilma Pierce of Pearl.
They are the first recipients of this year's Season of Giving Campaign.
The couple was nominated by their daughter-in-law. The donated furniture came as quite a surprise.
"Well, I knew she cared for us and all but never thought that she would do this, just never thought," said Wilma Pierce.
Jeff Pierce is a World War II and Korean war veteran.
His wife is disabled after being injured in an accident involving a drunk driver.
