Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman Lends a “Ham”

Kimberly Schlapman 3On Nov. 17, customers at Shoppers Food and Pharmacy in College Park, Maryland, got more than they’d budgeted for when Little Big Town’s Kimberly Schlapman showed up with some holiday surprises.

Her appearance on Nov. 17 at Shoppers Food and Pharmacy in College Park, Maryland, marked the launch of her “Lend a Ham” partnership with Smithfield. Its goal is to donate one million servings of protein to needy families by Dec. 24.

Check out this video and see how Schlapman went incognito to get the initiative underway, by handing out gift certificates to buyers.

These could include serving meals at a soup kitchen, donating a coat to someone in need, shoveling the sidewalk for a neighbor or any other gesture that reflects the holiday spirit.

For every such act, Smithfield will donate one serving of protein to a local food bank with the goal to reach one million servings.
