The Hannibal Jaycees and Junior Jaycees made a donation to the Buddy Pack Program on Aug. 2. The $500 donation was from proceeds raised during National Tom Sawyers Days. The Junior Jaycees worked the Pepsi trailer throughout the event in order to make their portion of the donation. The Buddy Pack program sends backpacks filled with food home with local students in need every weekend.

The Jaycees are pleased to be able to make a donation to the Buddy Pack program and are glad to be able to help area youth once again.
