Another large last minute donation to the Community Christmas Card to Faulkner County students put this year’s total of funds raised just under $23,000.

The special section of contributors’ names and their loved ones printed in the Log Cabin Democrat on Dec. 25, Christmas Day.

The section is scheduled to be published again, with new contributors added to the list on Jan. 1, New Years Day.

There’s still time to be included on the list of community members who will meet a future need of a young local student. 

Donations will be taken at the Log Cabin office at 1058 Front St. until the close of business Thursday, or online through PayPal at 

All contributions are forwarded to area counselors to be used as they and other educators see fit to meet individual students’ needs such as doctor visits, new glasses, warm clothing or shoes. 

Last year’s donations were $23,399, surpassing 2009’s total of $23,343.
