The ruling of giving Az-Zakah to a single family
Question:

If a man pays the Zakah of his wealth and it is only a little bit, like 200 riyals for example, is it better for it to be given to one needy family or should it be divided amoung a number of needy families? Please benefit me with an answer, and may Allah reward you with good.
Answer:

If the Zakah is a small amount, then giving it to a single needy family is better and more preferred. This is because distributing it among numerous families, with its small amount, will decrease its benefit.
