5. The Mileston Cooperative Association (update)
The Mileston community in Holmes County has the historical significance of being a New Deal Community created by the Roosevelt Administration during the Great Depression era. Roosevelt’s Resettlement Administration purchased land from wealthy landowners to facilitate communal settlements with poor people. With hard work, technical guidance, and financial assistance in the form of low-interest loans, Black sharecroppers eventually purchased land from the government. The Mileston community made considerable strides in the agricultural arena with the incorporation of a farmers’ cooperative in 1944. The Mileston Cooperative Association is the only farm cooperative in Holmes County and Tougaloo College has placed considerable emphasis on strengthening this 67 year old landmark organization.
6. Brothers Keepers Clothing Ministry
Brothers Keeper is a local clothing ministry dedicated to serving our Lord Jesus Christ through meeting the needs of others in our community. This local nonprofit organization collects gently used clothing items and disperses them as the needs arise in the community. We have been blessed to be partnered by The Wesley Youth Foundation to assist in identifying these needs and distributing the clothing. To date, we have been able to assist numerous families with clothing needs and we look forward to being able to help many more. Our mission is that the people receiving the items would feel and see the love of Christ. We are grateful for the opportunity in Kingdom Work and it would not be possible without the blessing of our Lord and the assistance of the Wesley Youth Foundation.
