JACKSON, Tenn. — Shoppers at a local grocery store got an extra dose of Easter sweets Saturday afternoon. A 28-year tradition, Tommy Climer said he started volunteering when he began working at Walmart. For many shoppers, the bake sale has become an Easter weekend tradition. Everything from cakes to cookies all are donated, and proceeds go to support Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. It’s something pageant winner Mary Humphrey can relate to, because she was treated there for scoliosis. Organizers say in years past they’ve raised up to $2,000 in just a few hours.
