Group marches toward ‘Helping’ event


Wearing bright red shirts and with hands clasped together, several members of Helping Hands of Sampson County walked around the Sampson County Agri-Exposition Center Monday morning to bring awareness to a local cause toward which they are dedicated. On March 5, the 58-member committee, with help from volunteers within the community, will provide a meal and entertainment for more than 500 first responders and their families at the Expo Center. The group needs between $40,000 and $45,000 to make the event happen. A non-political event, it will include the meal, lighting of candles, the playing of Taps and an offering of prayers. ‘We are expecting to feed around 3,000 people and provide them entertainment,’ Christy Sessoms, director of the Helping Hands of Sampson County, pictured center left, has said. ‘Some people may think that is a daunting amount to raise, but I have no doubt we will get what we need and probably more.’
