Car wash holds turkey giveaway for needy families

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Getting a turkey along with a car wash doesn't sound like a typical Christmas, but the effort is helping families in need.

The guys at Xtra Clean Auto held their fourth annual Christmas Giveway on Friday.

More than 200 people stopped by to receive hot meals, canned goods and warm clothes. The event was a joint effort by workers and their families and friends. The car wash owner said he gives because he at one time received.

"All of us were less fortunate at one particular time or another. And we learn from that. That it is better to give back than to receive all of the time," said Anthony Jackson, owner of Xtra Clean Auto.
