SOMERVILLE, Ala. (WAAY) -Members of the Beta Club at Cotaco Junior High School spent Friday sorting almost 800 canned goods that students donated. The food will be given to 28 families in the community that are struggling during the holidays.
Sarah Clark is a Beta Club member who helped sort the canned goods. "I love helping people and I love being able to give back because I know that there are people less fortunate than me that I do have a lot at Christmas" says Clark. "It just kind of breaks my heart that there is people that don't have as much as we do at Christmas."
Teachers will also be donating Christmas gifts that will be given to the families next week along with the food.
