Holiday donation

Jim Doss, commandant of the Marine Corps League MGM Detachment 1180 of Mason, Meigs and Gallia counties, collects money from shoppers leaving retail outlets Friday afternoon along Eastern Avenue. Doss said he and other members of the Marine Corps League were collecting money for various charities in the tri-county area, as well as for Christmas gifts for needy children. Area organizations for which the Marine Corps League plans to help with the donations include Serenity House, the Senior Center in Meigs County, and a homeless shelter in Point Pleasant, just to name a few.
