DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Volunteers are needed for a huge food giveaway that will be taking place next week.

The Line in the Sand Foundation and the New Beginnings Ministry are partnering together to hold their first food giveaway downtown at the Old Porter Square.

The organizations have a 50-foot trailer which equals out to over 20 thousand pounds of food items and personal necessities.

This event is open to everyone no matter your social status — the goal is to come together and help each other as a community heading into the holiday season.

“Our main objective is to help folks out so that they don’t have to choose between having something on the table or having something for Christmas we just want to help anybody who needs help,” says Brian Padgett

If you would like to volunteer and help them get all of that food out of the trailer, stop by New Beginning Ministries.

The food giveaway will be on December 22 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
