‘THV in Your Town’ feature: Pine Bluff

PINE BLUFF, Ark. (KTHV) - I spent the day visiting Pine Bluff, walking around and going to different visitor centers. Before I visited the area, I posted on Facebook that I was going to Pine Bluff (See original post: http://on.kthv.com/1jbwVrA). Based on some comments left by folks there, I half-expected to find a city in shambles, with decrepit buildings and sporting a mere shadow of a by-gone era. I was pleasantly surprised to find exactly the opposite.

Maumelle High Hornets Assist Residents Of Mayflower

Maumelle High Hornets Assist Residents Of Mayflower

On Friday, a team of Maumelle High School teachers and students collected a truckload of items for victims of the recent tornado, as well as $1,000 in cash, plus gift cards. On Saturday, they partnered with Habitat for Humanity to take 70 students, teachers and parents to Mayflower to help with clean-up efforts.

The team witnessed the devastation up close and heard stories from the families who lived through the disaster. While they were removing rubble from one of the sites, the leader in charge of volunteers told the team it belonged to a 78-year-old woman who survived by going to the corner of the house. They met her later and learned she had been a secretary for the counseling department at PCSSD’s Oak Grove High School.

This Saturday, May 10, 2014, the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) joins forces with the Arkansas Foodbank, United Way, the AARP Foundation and others to help Stamp Out Hunger in Little Rock and throughout Arkansas.  Letter carriers will fan out across the nation to pick up donated food on doorsteps and beside mailboxes as they deliver the mail.

The Stamp Out Hunger food drive, held annually on the second Saturday in May, has become the nation’s largest single-day food drive benefitting Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization, and its network of food banks. Last year’s drive brought in 74 million pounds of food and provided assistance to the millions of Americans struggling to put food on the table.
