LENA, MS — TheGrio has an update concerning 87-year-old Ester Davis of Lena. We first showed you that Ms. Davis is living in a 160-year-old leaky shack in deplorable conditions. A local church has been collecting donations to help her out, and so far more than $9,200 has been collected.

If you would like to help out, you can send a money order or a check to:

Mt. Olivet Baptist Church
c/o James Crain
6517 Clifton-Hillsboro Road
Forest, MS 39074

Make your check payable to the church, but be sure to indicate that it is for the Ester Davis Fund.
