Stewpot Community Services is in urgent need of donations.
The city of Jackson received less money from the Federal Housing and Urban Development Agency (HUD) for emergency shelters. Therefore Stewpot’s grants from the City have been reduced from $127,000 to $38,000, a reduction of $89,000. The United Way decided they could no longer disperse funds to Stewpot’s programs which represents a loss in revenue of $60,000. In a final granting area, HUD has declined to renew funding to Matt’s House Emergency Shelter for Women and Children, resulting in another loss of $50,000.
It faces closing two of its shelters, one for men and one for women and children. Please help if you can by donating.
Here is how:

Blair E. Batson Children Hospital
MPA is currently accepting donations for the Blair E. Batson Children Hospital in Jackson, Mississippi. Donations will be accepted from now until December 1, 2014. Please contact a MPA board member should you wish to donate to this worthy cause.
1. Toiletries – Any type of toiletry such as soap, lotion, mouthwash, toothpaste, toothbrush, deodorant, wipes, and any other type of toiletries. This is much needed at both hospitals. Usually parents do not know when they are coming to Blair E. Batson, so the hospital provides the parents toiletries. This is very much needed; and/or
2. Magazines – Any type of magazines that are in good condition. Parents like to have them and read them. Sometimes they do not want to turn the television on after their son or daughter has drifted off to sleep, so they read magazines.
