Ole Miss football players help raise awareness about child abuse
A group of Ole Miss football players joined in to help the Pontotoc Department of Human Services (DHS) with its 6th Annual Child Abuse Awareness event Saturday.
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month and Ole Miss quarterback Chad Kelly and some of his teammates gathered on the Pototoc Square to help DHS raise awareness about the abuse and neglect of children.
Kelly, Ross Donnelly, Nathan Noble, Van Jefferson, D.J. Jones, Eric Swinney, Marquis Haynes, Chadwick Lamar, Ty Quick, and Tony Bridges signed hundreds of autographs and took pictures with fans.
By serving their communities in many important ways, these young men show there is more to being an Ole Miss football player than just excelling on the field.
Mahatma Gandhi once said: “The future depends on what you do today.”
If that is indeed true, Ole Miss football is doing its part to make the future brighter for children in Mississippi.
If you suspect a child is being abused, neglected or exploited, contact the Mississippi Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-222-8000 or 601-432-4570.
