Award-winning actress and Meridian native Sela Ward spent time at Bonita Lakes Mall Friday.
Ward was signing special Christmas ornaments at McRae's. The proceeds benefit Hope Village for Children, a home for abused and neglected children in Meridian. It was founded by Ward.
Ward said Meridian and Mississippi have given her so much that she wants to contribute whenever and however she can.
In addition to the money raised through sales, McRae's is donating $10,000 to Hope Village for Children.
