The Carroll County Area Technology Center’s Health Occupation Students of America organization is sponsoring a “pet drive” to collect needed items for the local shelters and Carroll County Animal Support.
HOSA will distribute these items during a Christmas Gift Giving Party to be held at each shelter.
“It seems these animals get left out at this time of year and need our help,” adviser Tonya Lindsay, said.
Food for Fines will continue through the month of December with proceeds going to the Carroll County Ministerial Association Food Bank. Check at the desk for details of fine amnesty. Please check expiration dates on food items, outdated food will not be accepted.
Once the Thanksgiving traditions are complete and the family members have recapped all they’re thankful for, many Kentuckians will turn to sale fliers to plan their Black Friday or Cyber Monday attacks on Christmas shopping.
The Department of Financial Institutions reminds consumers to spend wisely this holiday season by shopping smarter, saving money and avoiding fraud.
We recently went through the interests of the children that are still on the waiting list of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Carroll County. Lo and behold, these children looking for a new friend are not asking for the world. In fact, most of us are exactly who they need in doses we can deliver.
For example, a 9-year-old girl writes that she hates to watch TV, but loves to go to Wal-Mart. An 8-year-old boy is very creative, enjoying music, acting and travel. A 10-year-old girl wants to go to Carroll County school events and spend time outside.
