CHARLES TOWN, W.Va. (WDVM) — Martin’s grocery store donated 100 hams to Jefferson County Community Ministries (JCCM) Thursday morning.
JCCM, located in Charles Town, was a former J.C. Penney and offers services to help people get back on their feet, including a food pantry, counseling, and a clothing closet.
Thursday morning, workers from the local Martin’s store helped deliver the hams.
Jefferson County Community Ministries is currently ran with the help of over 200 volunteers, according to Assistant Director, John Cloyd.
Sharon Buchan received a ham and says she’s incredibly grateful. “Especially a ham because I wanted one for Thanksgiving and I didn’t get it. I feel happy and blessed.”
Officials from Martin’s say they will donate 1,000 hams across the region this week as one way of giving back this time of year.
