DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - February 11th is National 2-1-1 Day and Monday the Wiregrass 2-1-1 took time to reflect.

A small ceremony was held to celebrate the service given to the Wiregrass area.

The Marine Corps League Detachment 752 presented the organization with a check for 211.19 cents.

Every year, one cent is added for each year 2-1-1 has served the Wiregrass.

Executive Director, David Duke says they use the day to not only recognize the service given to local communities, but the service they get in return.

"Most people when they think of 2-1-1 they think this is a place I call when I need help.. and it is and we will continue to be, but it is also a number that if you want to give help and reach out to your community and give help.. you can."

2-1-1 helps connect members of the community with health and social services.
