Entire neighborhoods in Gulfport and Pearlington saw hundreds of teenagers from across the country mobilizing Wednesday to clean up, rebuild and pass out groceries.
The teenage workforce had arrived in the thousands at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg on Saturday to take part in a week-long conference called “Momentum.”
The special conference is sponsored by CE National and is an annual event with thousands of junior high and high school students in attendance.
As a part of the ministry training sessions, the teenagers go out into the field to serve the community through what has become known as “The Blitz.”
