Jackson Mayor Wants To Host 'Month Of Miracles'

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - Jackson Mayor Jerry Gist is preparing his city for a month of miracles.

Gist told The Jackson Sun that he is enlisting help from civic clubs, churches and nonprofit organizations to make the miracles happen in April, which is National Volunteer Month. His vision is for the groups to dedicate the entire month to working on a variety of projects around the city that would improve it.

He said many of the projects would probably involve home improvements and landscaping, but other options are available.

Monique Merriweather, coordinator of the initiative and neighborhood services director for Jackson, said she needs help from local groups to determine where to focus efforts that will be part of the "Month of Miracles."
