MILFORD - Volunteers at the Milford Elks Club made Christmas a bit brighter for those in need Wednesday.

Dozens of volunteers served holiday meals to those who otherwise may not have had one.

They say it made them feel good to spend their holiday giving the gift of a hot meal to those in need instead of spending it at home opening gifts.

Organizers say they made enough food for the more than 100 people they were expecting. The group also delivered boxes of food to more than 200 local families.
