OROVILLE, Calif. - Despite the challenges of this year, it is still a season of giving.

Friday, The Oroville Fraternal Order of Eagles Club 196 held a special Christmas giveaway for hundreds of families in need.

The event takes place every year on Christmas and organizers say it is open to anyone who needs it.

Usually they host a big dinner at their location on Montgomery Street in Oroville, but with the pandemic this year, everything was to-go.

They gave away a full christmas dinner and some free gifts.

11-year-old, Charlie Jones came out to volunteer at the event. He says its an annual tradition for him and he enjoys giving back to the community. "I think with the pandemic and all of that, a lot of people are struggling and they may not have the same resources other people do," he said.

The group said it is important to give back to the Butte County community.

"It's important every year, we get hit with fires and all sorts of things that displace people, so even this year with the pandemic going on, unfortunately we can't sit indoors but people are in need," said Beverly Delucchi, the auxiliary president for The Oroville Fraternal Order of Eagles Club.

In total they gave away around 500 dinners to people in the community.

The Eagles organzation has put on this Christmas dinner in Oroville for the last 40 years.

Hotter temperatures, elevated fire danger, and more widespread impacts to air quality are ahead for your Friday. We'll get even hotter on Saturday, and stay hot on Sunday. A drop in temperatures and the potential for thunderstorms will return to northern California early next week.
