Last minute donations brought the Community Christmas Card fund to $22,521 this year. Every penny will go into the hands of local educators, and into the lives of Faulkner County students in need.

The final total of names number 3,987, but organizers said there were many anonymous donations.

Because the effort was extended, an updated list of names is included in this edition of the Log Cabin Democrat.

Thanks to thousands of individuals, area students who find themselves wanting will be helped in this community.
