Dothan Rotary hands out meals for the holiday

DOTHAN Ala.(WTVY)- The Dothan Houston County Rotary Club is preparing more than a hundred meals for families who need Christmas dinner.

Friday, they began preparing bags filled with turkey, ham, and sides.

Every year they partner with a local organization for the charitable effort.

This year the names came from the Dothan Rescue Mission.

Organizers say this may be one of most needful years.

Tuesday Rotary Club Service Project Manager Alice Beckham said, "Particularly this year with the storms and the hurricane, tornados we've had this is such a welcome relief for someone that can't buy groceries for Christmas meal for their family I think it gives some sort of relief.”

Saturday, club members will begin delivering the meals at the Rescue Mission.
