DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Nearly $5,000 were raised for Dothan Leisure Service Therapeutic programs thanks to Brandy Deese.

Deese and her helpers sold inspirational calendars to people in the area. The calendars had bible verses on each of the pages.

On Tuesday, the Dothan City Commission honored them for their hard work.

The money will be used to start other therapeutic programs and more opportunities for Wiregrass residents.
