NATCHEZ, Miss. (AP) - A Christmas Eve donation of $5,000 has helped a Natchez organization reach its $100,000 goal to hire a planning firm to map out the future of the city's downtown area.

The $5,000 check was handed to the president of the group "FOR Natchez" on the day before Christmas.

That, combined with another donation from a local business earlier in the week, brought FOR Natchez to the $100,000 mark.

The organization plans to hire a firm called The Walker Collaborative to develop a strategic plan for the future of downtown Natchez.
