Derick Hall, an Auburn University football player who attended Gulfport High School, is holding his first food giveaway.
To feed the approximately 300 residents of Gulfport, it takes a village. As they organize the first Derick Hall Turkey Giveaway, local leaders, police enforcement, volunteers, business owners, nonprofits, and many, many more will participate, including Derick Hall's family, a former football star from Gulfport.
Residents began lining up in their automobiles as early as 1 p.m. to collect a free Thanksgiving turkey. A prayer began the first ceremony at 4, and then the more than 200-car line began to move.
290 entire turkeys, as well as canned veggies and dessert cakes, were distributed during the turkey giveaway.
Stacy Crandle, Derick's mother, is aware of how crucial it is to help out deserving families. We are aware of the impact food insecurity has on families, so even being able to provide Thanksgiving meals for 278 families means the world to my family and us. We are so grateful to be able to do this.
The Harrison County board of supervisors, Dad's Super Pawn, Gulfport police, and fire departments, Extend a Hand, Help a Friend, the Harrison County constable, as well as other neighborhood businesses and churches, rallied volunteers to make this happen. "We are all about teamwork and bringing individuals together because we are not whole if one person is left out," stated Representative Jeffrey Hulum III.
On November 16th at 11 a.m. at Moss Point City Hall, there will be a food drop. On Tuesday, November 22nd, at 11 a.m., at Gulfport's Good Deeds Community Center, there will be a food drop for Harrison County.
