Brothers and sisters, can you spare a ham?
Then the Salvation Army Manatee County can use it and more.
Volunteers will be serving more than 400 needy folks from 4-6 p.m. at the annual community Christmas meal 4-6 p.m. Dec. 25.
Baked ham will comprise the main course with scalloped potatoes, green beans, rolls and dessert.
Kitchen manager Brian Schultz is reaching out to the community.
“We need to cook at least 100 hams in order to serve the expected numbers," he said.
Right now, they have 10.
Schultz and his staff will begin preparing and cooking hams this week to make sure everything is ready.
Additional needs include potatoes, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Donations can be dropped off at The Salvation Army, 1204 14th St. W., Bradenton.
