In late November and early December Scottsboro Lions Club selects twenty families to assist in order for them to have something at Christmas. Without Christmas Charities their Christmas would appear as cloudy and hazy as the background on this web page. Each family selected is interviewed by a Lions Club member where it is decided what they may need in the way of clothing or toys for the younger children. After the interview Lions Club members assist them in the purchase of these items which are paid for by the Scottsboro Lions Club. Favorite places to shop have been Hammers, on the square in Scottsboro and Walmart. In addition to these purchases food baskets are prepared by Piggly - Wiggly. The food baskets are generally delivered two to three days before Christmas.
