As the holiday season nears its end, so does the annual drive for the Log Cabin Democrat’s Community Christmas Card.

Today is the final day for donations, which can by dropped off at the Log Cabin office at 1058 Front St. or donated online at until 5 p.m.

This year, the Community Christmas Card has raised more than $21,600. Every penny will go to schools in Faulkner County to provide shoes, clothes, glasses and other necessities for needy children as school counselors see fit.

Even though Christmas has come and gone, the need remains for hundreds of Faulkner County children and will continue through the new year.

As part of donating to the Community Christmas Card, donors get their names listed among all the others in a special section of the newspaper. The Log Cabin will print another list of donors New Year’s Day.

Donations are needed and welcomed. Donors may give as little or as much as they please.
