DALTON, Ga. (WDEF)- An organization in Dalton had its annual Christmas community giveback early this Christmas Eve morning.

The Dalton Elks Lodge organized Christmas gifts and food for over a hundred families in the Dalton area.

They have been organizing this event every single year for decades.

Junior Roberson, a Trustee at the Dalton Elks Lodge, said of the impact of the event, “It’s real touching. A lot of the times I stay here because it’s kind of sad when you go out to places and you see the kids on them, I’ve been to several where the kids are more happy to see the food come in the house than the toys. So that’s kind of heartwarming and sad all at the same time.”

The Dalton Elks Lodge hosts numerous community events in Whitfield County throughout the year. They thank all of their members and volunteers for the braving the cold and helping their neighbors.
