Christmas wish lists for children in 64 Crittenden County households are now available at Shopko and Conrad’s Harvest Foods. Community Christmas coordinator Cheryl Burks said the number of families participating is down for the third straight year, following implementation of a three educational/enrichment class requirement for participation in the Christmas charity. Three years ago 151 families were registered to receive food and gifts.
Monetary donations can be taken to Farmers Bank or taken or mailed to the Extension office on U.S. 60 East. Paper products can be taken to Marion Baptist Church through Monday, Dec. 5.
Community Christmas Distribution will be from 9 a.m. to noon, Friday, Dec. 16 at the Carson G. Davison National Guard Armory.
