Pearl Family Gets Free Furniture

The holidays are a time for giving, and WLBT and Miskelly furniture have teamed up once again to the brighten the season for a family that's gone through some tough times. 

Lisa Byrd recently escaped with her two sons from an abusive relationship in Colorado. The single mom has since begun a new life in Pearl, starting a new full time job and renting an apartment.

The family has had to sleep on the floor, until now. Miskelly delivered new furniture Monday, including bunkbeds for the boys and queen size bed for Byrd.

"I'm very grateful. I thank the Lord above first and foremost," said Byrd. "I'm just grateful. I hope it's given me the opportunity to help someone in return very shortly, because things are looking up for us."

Byrd was nominated for the "season of giving" campaign by her boss at work.
