Glazed Holiday Ham with Cloves Served for Dinner

HARRISBURG, Pa.– Bethesda Mission is in need of 5 lb. – 7 lb. hams, fresh produce and canned food to help provide a traditional Christmas dinner to hungry men, women, and children.  On Sunday, December 25th, Christmas day, beginning at 4:30 p.m. and continuing until 5:30 p.m., a Christmas dinner will be offered to anyone who needs a meal or has nowhere else to go to celebrate the Christmas season!
