Each year, in the giving spirit of the holiday season, the Log Cabin Democrat joins Faulkner County to help our children.

We all realize the value of a good education to children and to us. Some children have a lot more to worry about than whether or not they are getting the most out of their education. If we can help with eyeglasses, dental work, coats or school supplies...we might just save a child's life!

This program is unique in that 100% of the funds received go directly to the students who need it through their school's counselor. The counselor is the person best equipped to know the unique needs of the students, and the money is there for them to use whenever needed to improve children's chances of getting the education they deserve.

The Community Christmas Card will publish on Christmas Day and New Years Day. Anyone who contributes $1 will have their name printed on the Community Christmas Card. We'll publish every name we receive.

This is also an inexpensive way to get your whole family involved in helping others during the holidays. Businesses and organizations can participate as well.

The proceeds from this project will be divided proportionally among Faulkner County Schools.

Donations should be received no later than Wednesday, December 19. Donations will still be accepted after this date, but your name may not appear. If you have any questions or comments, please call Chealsey Mosby 501-505-1210
