The Perkinston Campus Faculty Association of Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College held a food drive for the Stone County SPCA during the month of October. Donations benefitted the many homeless dogs and cats of the Stone County shelter.
“Our faculty association feels community service should be a top priority and represents our faculty and MGCCC in a positive way,” said Jason Shows, history instructor and campus Faculty Association representative. “Many of the animals were in such horrible shape before the shelter stepped in, and it takes a tremendous amount of resources to bring those animals back to health.”
Shows said feedback was great, with contributions from Perkinston Campus, family and friends, and the social media community.
“It was definitely a team effort, and we appreciate the love shown by our family here on campus and in the community,” Shows said. “We plan to continue this event every year to support the great work of the Stone County SPCA.”
Donations to the shelter are welcome at any time – food, litter, cleaning supplies, towels, old blankets and more are always needed and appreciated. To make a donation, visit Stone County SPCA on Facebook.
