Leighton hosts community event with Salvation Army

COLBERT COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – The small town of Leighton was the backdrop for a community event with the Salvation Army on Thursday.

Community leaders distributed blankets, pillows and groceries to residents. Dozens of cars lined up to receive their goods and chat with each other.

Leighton council member Joel Hogan, who organized the event, says the community is often overlooked, but you won’t find a nicer, friendlier town.

“The Leighton community is very family-friendly,” Hogan told News 19. “I can’t go to the dollar store without buying something and at least talking to three people. So that’s what kind of community we are.

Hogan says they often try to hold similar events and the city plans to invest more in the community to make it even stronger.
