MONROE — American Legion Post 488 in Monroe is again looking for the community's involvement to help needy vets to make their own Easter dinners by donating hams to the organization.

"Members of the community can help us by donating any extra hams they may have," said Marty Currid, a Post member who is coordinating the collection. “For some, this will make a difference in having a traditional Easter meal.”

Currid said many people have free hams earned at ShopRite and don't "miss" them because they're extra ones earned through shopping points at the store.

"ShopRite understands the importance of giving back and recognizing the important contributions our veterans make to our nation," he added.

All donors need to do is stop by the legion hall on Lakes Road after 2 p.m. any day with their donations.

The hams will be kept in the legion's freezers and passed onto veterans in time for Easter.

To learn more, call 783-3965.
