Youth enjoy a special Christmas meal

Posted: Updated:

Some young people in Dawson enjoyed a Christmas meal prepared just for them Thursday night.     

The Positive Direction Youth Center, a non-profit in Dawson dedicated to serving children, served members turkey and dressing, macaroni and cheese, peas, and sweet potatoes. They fed more than 100 kids.

"Well for our kids we provide this and additionally we have a store in the back we call our one stop shop where our children will get a chance to shop for their Christmas presents," said Dorothy Tomlin, program director.     

The youth were also allowed to pick out some Christmas gifts that Santa will deliver to them at a special event tomorrow.
