Hurricane Katrina has ravaged the Gulf Coast, and many citizens in America wish to help their neighbors to the south, including the Town of Taylorsville city government. The Taylorsville Town Council agreed on Sept. 6 to donate 20 food boxes to Hurricane Katrina victims and set aside a sum of $1,000 to purchase necessary items for the boxes. According to Town Manager David Odom, the goods were bought from the Taylorsville Market Basket Food Store at a discounted price. Store manager Alan Hunt and office manager Greg Bentley aided the effort by supplying and packing the shipping boxes in which the food will be sent to Bay St. Louis, Mississippi. The North Carolina Baptist Men picked up the boxes from Town Hall and took the load of donations to Mississippi.The boxes contained unperishable food items.
