MENAHGA —Brad Livingston has taken charge of a donation effort for those affected by the Green Valley Fire north of Menahga.

After the fire displaced several families and destroyed homes in May, Livingston wanted to help. He didn’t know how at first but after some prayer he found his calling.


In the days immediately after the fire May 14, which burned 7,100 acres, several of Menahga’s buildings were already being used for meetings, temporary housing or a Red Cross site.
