HARTSELLE, AL (WAFF) -

Some families in Hartselle didn't go Christmas shopping Saturday; instead, they made sure needy families had something to eat on Christmas.

Volunteers for the Christmas Basket Brigade gathered at the rec center in Hartselle to put together food baskets.

The baskets included a turkey, vegetables and dessert.

The packages also included a Bible and a Christmas card.

The group's goal was to deliver at least 300 meals.

Organizers said the goal of the brigade is not only to help needy families but also to teach children that it's important to help others.
