HyVee staff gives away free holiday hams
OTTUMWA, Iowa (KYOU) - Tuesday HyVee staff distributed free hams at The Quincy Mall in Ottumwa.
Jeremy Johnson, who is the district store director in Ottumwa says he was happy the corporation could make a difference in the community.
“Wonderful opportunity today to team up with our first responders of Ottumwa and with Hormel as well and we’re basically handing out 300 hams to the community. Great opportunity to outreach and to make a difference. "
The giveaway was intended to start at 5 PM, but because cars arrived early, Johnson thought it was a good idea to start giving them away around 4:15 PM to prevent heavy traffic.
This event was a first come first served and provided one free ham, per vehicle for anyone who showed up just in time for the Easter holiday.
