All members of the Junior Auxiliary of Biloxi-Ocean Springs are assigned a school in either Biloxi or Ocean Springs School District to help provide clothing, school supplies, medical, dental, and financial assistance for children that are in need. This is all in partnership with the school counselors, nurses, and teachers. Once a student in need is identified by the school, the assigned member is called to fill the request as needed. We find that working directly with the schools opens up many needs that otherwise we would not know.
