Fondren Live is back this Thursday!

JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -

We have been stuck inside avoiding the rain and rising water levels for weeks!

Now the rain has cleared, but the aftermath is just beginning.

An estimated 150,000 people and businesses have been impacted by this water crisis.

Local businesses still need your support, and with a clear forecast in sight, Fondren Live is the perfect place to do it!

Stay updated with the Fondren Renaissance Foundation Facebook page for the latest information on businesses impacted by the water crisis.

Start things off at 5:30 pm with Children’s of Mississippi for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Dr. Anderson Collier will speak on the important work they are doing to combat childhood cancer.

Then it’s time for the party! A UMMC doctor and DJ, will be playing music and raising money for Children’s of Mississippi.
