RIDGELAND, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

It's week two of "Season of Giving" by WLBT and Miskelly's Furniture and our cameras were rolling for a special delivery in Ridgeland. 

Mr. Joseph Horne is the recipient. 

Just to share a snippet of his story, Horne lost his wife to a brain aneurysm a few years ago. He later lost his home, car and job.

Things turned around for Horne earlier this year with the help of the Salvation Army and now he's working again and has a place to call home.

"I would also like to thank Dr. V. and Miskellys for thinking enough of me to be able to help me to put more pieces of the puzzle of my life back together," said Horne.

Horne will no longer have to sleep on the floor. 

He is one of 25 people to benefit from the program.
