The countdown is on for the Salvation Army.
In one month the organization will give out 26,000 cans of food to 1,300 area families in need, but the group is still 17,000 cans short.
That is why the group is holding a Dec. 7 Canned Food Movie Day. For three cans of food, you can go to the Carmike Theater in Dothan and see Despicable Me 2, Smurfs 2 or Escape from Planet Earth.
The theater will provide popcorn and a drink, making the day a win-win for families and the Salvation Army.
If you can’t make it to the Salvation Army Canned Food Movie Day, you can still donate canned food to the Salvation Army office. Monetary donations are also accepted at the office or through the red kettles set up around town.
