A box, some food and some cash; helping tornado victims - MSNewsNow.com - Jackson, MS

Food drive for tornado victims in Madison Friday

MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A cardboard box and about $20 can go a long way to help Mississippi tornado victims out. The Salvation Army is passing out boxes for the community to fill up with non-perishable foods for families hit hard by this week's storms.

When you go to the Kroger on Highway 51 in Madison all you have to do is pick up a Salvation Army box, get a grocery list and fill the box up with what you can afford.

"It costs about twenty to thirty dollars depending on how much you can spend. Non-perishable pastas, things that are protein, things that'll help people through the next few days until everything can get back on line. We want to fill up these boxes, we hope we can drive this 26 foot truck back to Hattiesburg with 500 filled up food boxes," said Captain Ken Chapman of the Salvation Army.

The Salvation Army will be on hand to collect the food boxes at the Madison Kroger on Highway 51 until 7:00 P.M. Friday.
