A Bay Area charity has put out its holiday wish list -- it's in dire need of Christmas hams.

Saint Anthony's Foundation needs to collect 500 hams before Tuesday so it can serve its traditional Christmas dinner.

It made a similar appeal for turkeys before Thanksgiving and was able to surpass its goal.

St. Anthony's serves thousands of meals a day. They say one-fifth of those seeking assistance are military veterans.

Donations can be dropped off at its dining room at 150 Golden Gate Avenue in San Francisco.
