VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Thousands of people in need will receive clothes, food and prayer on Christmas Eve in Valdosta.

It's the 13th annual Feed the Needy Program.

Friday volunteers will help people pick out toys and clothing for their children.

They'll also get a hot meal as long as they spend a little time in prayer.

Meals can also be delivered.

Churches and organizations have come from miles away to spend their Christmas Eve helping including Florida resident Gary Blevins one of the cooks.

"We're just excited about being able to help people and as you know this is the largest program on Christmas Eve in South Georgia and it's the largest one on Chrismas Eve serving over 6,000 people in the state of Georgia," said Pastor J.D. Martin.

"This is a very good cause and to help people less fortunate is a blessing," said Gary Blevins with Muchee's Smoke House. 

The event starts at 10 o'clock at 1903 North Forrest Street and lasts until 2 p.m. For more information you can call (229) 292-8979 or (229) 740-0643.
