MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

It's the most wonderful time of the year, right? Well, for some local families, the holidays are rough. Imagine having no money to provide gifts to your children, and nothing set aside for a special Christmas dinner. This is a burden thousands of area families face every year. Shouldn't every family feel the blessings of Christmas?

That is the mission of 12's Day of Giving: A one day event to help local families make the holidays special, when they can't afford to otherwise.

This Friday, December 13th, is that day.

WSFA 12 News, along with Cumulus, Clear Channel, and Dixie Electric Cooperative, present - 12's Day of Giving - to benefit Toys For Tots, Christmas Clearing House, and the Montgomery Area Food Bank. These three groups truly capture the spirit of giving in this community around the holidays.

The WSFA 12 News tents will be set up in front of the WAL-MART Superstore on Atlanta Highway from 5:00AM until 7:00PM, accepting donations of unused toys, non-perishable food and money. WSFA 12 News personalities will be live at the event all day long with updates on the success of 12's Day of Giving.

The good people at Dixie Electric Cooperative will be helping to "power" the event and collect donations.

This Friday, come out and be a part of the WSFA 12 News commitment to our community and make a contribution to the lives of the less fortunate families in Alabama.
