Dawson -- A South Georgia company is donating help to our sister television station in Biloxi as they continue to broadcast despite their own storm damage.

The Dawson Tarp Company cleaned out their warehouse of spare tarps and covers. More than eight thousand dollars worth of tarps are now headed to Biloxi.

They'll be used to help cover holes Hurricane Katrina blew in the roof of WLOX and for the station employee homes. Plant Manager Stacy Moreland said "We want to do what we can to help. Those people have been devastated, and it's going to hurt everybody."

 WLOX TV is also broadcasting on radio in Biloxi and over the Internet.

Dawson Tarp's gifts will help keep the station serving the public.
