The Monett Jaycees are again accepting donations to prepare Thanksgiving baskets for less fortunate residents in Monett. Collections will begin next week.
Last year the Jaycees helped 22 families totaling 97 people. Kristen Nava and Audrey White are serving as co-chairpersons for this year's effort.
Donations of non-perishable food items for the baskets can be dropped off at Ramey Supermarket, Save-A-Lot or the U.S. Bank branch at 522 E. Broadway. Financial donations can be made at the same locations.
Baskets are limited to residents in the 65708 zip code. Families can be nominated to receive assistance. The Jaycees have requested the name and physical address of the family, the number of adults and children in the family and a contact phone number. Information can be sent to the Monett Jaycees, PO Box 406, Monett, MO 65708.
