Day 4

*** Click the donate button below! ***


Day 4: It’s Friday, December 17, and hopefully by now we have packed all of the baskets!  Today, a member of the Jaycees will be picking up over 1300, 3lb. canned hams from the Maryville Kroger location in his refrigerated truck. This is the second time we have purchased a refrigerated item, and the second time we have purchased a 3lb canned ham. Due to the supply chain issues (Covid), we were unable to purchase 1lb canned hams (normally, we include two in every basket); therefore, we had to purchase a more expensive ham for the food baskets this year. Today, donate to help offset the cost ($10,876.80) of the more expensive hams.
