    April 15 Designated as “Paint the City Red Day”

    HATTIESBURG, Miss. – (April 8, 2020) Hattiesburg is kicking off its “Paint the City Red Day” on Wednesday, April 15, but you don’t have to wait until then to get started.

     

    This “red” movement is making its way across the country to towns big and small as people ban together at a safe distance to show we will make it through this public health crisis, and as a community, we will be stronger for it. For these reasons and more, Forrest General and the City of Hattiesburg are encouraging the community to join together to place a red ribbon on a tree, a mailbox or door at a home/ business or to wear red (even while at home) in solidarity for this effort. 

    The color red is often associated with energy, strength, power and determination – all which embody #TheHattiesburgWay.

     

    “We hope the community will show a unified display of hope, faith, and determination as we weather the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mille Swan, Forrest Health Vice President.

     

    You don’t have to go out and spend a lot of money. Re-purpose red ribbon leftovers from Christmas or pull a red shirt out of your closet. To amplify the effort, we encourage you to share photos on social media, using the hashtag #HburgWearsRed, of how creative your family/colleagues, neighborhood or business is by using what is on hand to display red in support. From a safe distance, we can all share the collective spirit of Hattiesburg’s hope, faith and determination.

     

    Let’s unite and show a symbol of hope to our health care teams, first responders and others as we stay home and stay stronger together.
