Christmas is a little brighter for many local families, thanks to the continued success of the Ward Faulkenberry Memorial Christmas Basket fund.
The fund, which provides food vouchers for those in need, has collected nearly $9,000, according to the latest tallies Wednesday. And the good news is that you can contribute to the effort through the rest of the year.
Food vouchers are given based on the number of people in each household. Recipients can use those vouchers at local grocery stores.
