Special Boat Team 22 helps SPCAPublished 9:36am Wednesday, June 19, 2013
Special Boat Team 22 members, based out of Stennis, visited the Pearl River County SPCA, on Saturday, to implement “Operation Rescue PRC SPCA.”
The Pearl River County SPCA posted on their Facebook page that they were blessed by the team, who “swarmed” in on them from 8 a.m. until after noon.
The team, who could not be identified for security issues, did board rot repairs, landscaping, and repainting some of the interior and exterior of the building.
“When they left, we had a brand new look and a solution to a long term flooding problem. The entire project was their idea and all 23 of them were giving up their valuable time off to provide us with this wonderful service,” said the post.
SPCA long time board member Maria Diamond said, “We are so fortunate that they even thought of us. We are very blessed and there are no words to adequately convey our appreciation.”
Special Boat Team 22 officials stated, “We make a point to go out into the community a few times a year and just give back to the area we live in. We assessed the most critical of their needs and addressed them. That is who we are and part of the code we live by.
“We are proud to not only serve our country, but the community in which we live as well.”
