• Wright, 8, donates gifts to needy children

    The giving of gifts is a holiday tradition, but this year Savannah Wright, the eight-year-old daughter of Debbie Dixon and Wesley Wright, created her own tradition.

    It started when Savannah decided to re-gift a Winnie the Pooh children’s table that was new in the box.

    “She looked into where she could give the table to someone who could use it,” Dixon said. “Of course, she found more than one child who needed help at Christmas time.”

  • Feeding the hungry in our Community

    Approximately 60-70 volunteers gathered at the Food Pantry of Carroll County Saturday morning to add perishable food items to the Christmas food baskets and deliver them to Carroll County families. This year, 211 families received food through the program, ranging from one person up to 14 people per family.

  • Community Christmas Project

    Leigh Ann Roberts said it was another successful year for the Community Christmas Project. So many children and families got so many neat gifts thanks to the work of many volunteers. It truly is a blessing, she said. Thanks to the anonymous donors that made a child’s life better as every angel on the Wal-Mart Angel Tree was sponsored.

    Each family that participated in any of the Community Christmas programs had to complete 12 hours of educational programs through the Carroll County adult education program.
