Salvation Army Movie Day.

DOTHAN Ala.(WTVY)- A few canned goods in exchange for a free movie, popcorn and a drink all for a good cause.

The Salvation Army collected canned goods at the AMC 12 in Dothan in efforts to fill their food boxes for those in need.

They collected roughly one thousand cans.

Organizers say the turnout wasn’t as big compared to last year, due to weather but every donation counts.

Salvation Army Board member Earl Kelly said, “We have people that won’t have enough for Christmas and they won’t have food there’s also the toy drive which is through the Angel Tree our goal is to help people that can’t help themselves right now give them a hand up.”

The Salvation Army will be distributing the can goods collected on December 17th.
