CHAMBERS COUNTY— It is now time to “Pay It Forward”.
Chambers County is raising funds to help the victims of the recent deadly tornados that ravaged Mississippi, Alabama and Illinois. County Officials have talked with Officials in Monroe County Mississippi where in the small town of Smithville almost every building was destroyed and 19 people lost their lives.
The county asks that you donate to this worthy cause. Funds will be given to Community Bank For Smithville Relief Fund to help Monroe County, Mississippi.
The county has set a goal of Paying It Forward of $33,000; Doubling It Forward of $66,000 or Tripling It Forward of $99,000 by August 1, 2011.
On September 13, 2008 Hurricane Ike cut a path of destruction through Chambers County.
In the aftermath of the worst disaster ever seen in our community we felt the kindness and selfless acts of individuals, organizations and corporations from across the United States.
Chambers County employees thank Jackson County, Ms. for their $33,000 contribution. Jackson County, Ms. had received help from Jackson County, Mn. in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina and had chosen to “Pay It Forward” to Chambers County.
