People in Prince Albert are making sure the less fortunate have a Merry Christmas, by serving up a massive dinner on Christmas Day.

The Community Christmas Dinner is takng place on December 25 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. CST at St. Mary High School.

Last year, turkey supper was served to more than two thousand people. 

"You should see those children when you give them a toy and also a bag of goodies," said volunteer John Dorion. "It's nice to see, and that's why it's worth it."

For those that can't make the event, volunteers will deliver to their door.

"It's surprising, but there are a lot of people in this city that don't have the resources to put together a good Christmas for their families," Dorion said. "We're trying to help the less fortunate."

"These are people that are struggling during the holidays. Especially on Christmas Day. That's when the pressure is on the families."
