Meridian, Miss. Congressman Gregg Harper also toured a local charity in Meridian Friday.
Newscenter 11 caught up with the congressman as he finished up his tour of Wesley House Friday afternoon. He said he was quite impressed with what all the Wesley House does in not only serving Meridian, but the surrounding communities as well. The Wesley House reaches into 20 counties to lend a helping hand to those in need.
"The Christian services that they give here to look out and try to help those that are in need whatever their family situation may be and certainly a lot of people that are struggling with poverty and trying to work their way out of that. What a great resource Wesley House has been for a long time," said Mississippi Congressman Gregg Harper.
Wesley House has been serving the area since 1904.
