MIAMI (WSVN) - Some South Florida families will have to wait a few more days to receive holiday help from CAMACOL.
CAMACOL’s annual holiday basket giveaway will take place in Little Havana on Wednesday.
More than 3,000 vouchers will be given out on a first come, first served basis to those wanting to receive a basket, starting at 8 a.m.
More than 50 people had already lined up for the giveaway on Tuesday.
“They come, you know, from Monday and start getting in line because it’s a lot of people that come every year,” said Indiana Barbarra, who’s waiting in line, “but thank God to those people. We get that help, you know, they really help to the family.”
Some residents camped out along West Flagler Street and Northwest 14th Avenue to get ready for the big day. “I’ve been waiting here since Thursday midnight, since Thursday at midnight with my best friend,” said one woman.
Those who get a voucher will return on Dec. 13 to receive their free holiday meal.
This will be the Latin Chamber of Commerce’s 32nd year helping South Florida families have a holiday meal.
