HATTIESBURG, Miss. - The local non-profit Extra Table is holding a Christmas Concert Tuesday to help them fight hunger across the Pine Belt.

Their mission is putting an end to hunger by supplying food pantries in the area with supplies each month. All of the money they raise at the concert will help them do more before Christmas.

Organizers say the holiday concert will feature several school choruses from the area.

They say this is the biggest fundraiser they have each year.

The event will be held at the Saenger Theater in downtown Hattiesburg.

This year they will have two shows, one at  6 p.m. and one at 8 p.m.

Last year about 700 people came out.

"You have average Joe's who have lost their jobs and have wiped out their savings and now they need help from a food pantry or soup kitchen, so it was great to see everybody turn up to help everybody," Raven Tynes said, executive director of Extra Table.

Tickets are$ 20 for adults and $10 for children.

Tickets can be purchased from the Saenger.
