This holiday season, United Christian Assistance Program in Minden has received 54 hams as a donation from Hormel Foods Corporation and Brookshire Grocery Co.
UCAP is an organization that provides food, clothing, utility bill assistance, and other services for members of the community who are in need. Charlotte Jones, director of UCAP, said the donation will help with their food distribution efforts over the Christmas season.
“We’re very grateful to get them,” she said. “We have a list of people who are in need for Christmas, and we’ll be distributing the hams to them, starting with the bigger families first.”
