The Oakes, Oak Grove, Miss. – Even though times are difficult for just about everyone, Southern States SC asks you to support the Mississippi, Ball Project with your donation, however small. At Christmas’ past, we have supported the Ball Project by collecting balls and accepting financial donations on their behalf. Due to the difficulties presented by the Covid-19 restrictions, we were unable to collect balls at the Oakes this year. However, you can still contribute by sending a financial donation to:

or contact Joe E. Garvin to arrange to drop off or collect a donation of balls at

โ€œGive me a ball and Iโ€™ll have a thousand kids chasing after it.โ€ โ€“Solomon, Kenya.

While the Ball Project works with underprivileged kids all over the world, your donation will be used for the many kids in our own state who are suffering this Christmas. (Image is from part of a previous years collection)
