The Odessa Jaycees are making it easier for a local organization to make a big global impact.

On Friday, they gave 3-thousand dollars to Mercy Trips Healthcare Outreach Program to make it a little easier for them to go to Uganda.

For the past 5 years, the Mercy Trips Group has gone to Uganda to provide healthcare for more than 350 people a day.

The Odessa Jaycees is a local leadership group that assists with community projects year round.
