Hope everyone is having an awesome day! We are in the final week of collection of donations for our annual toy drive, which benefits children and teenagers in DHS Foster care. Thank you for your caring hearts during this time of year! Let’s help make special memories for as many children as we can! Remember you can drop donations off at either of our courthouse locations (Greenwood and Fort Smith). We are collecting items for children from 1-18, so any and every donation is appreciated!

Prayers to the Fayetteville LEO family. There are very few professions that put themselves in harms way so that we may live in peace, providing the greater good for all civilized societies. We go about our days inevitably oblivious to the dangers this world holds because of the service and bravery demonstrated by these guardians. The losses of our LEO men and women always hurts , regardless of location, but this one hits deeper than most because it’s so close to home. We will always have your back. Thank you all for protecting us and making sure our families are safe. #wehaveyour6 #thinbluelibe #LEO #thankyou

We are collecting toys for children in foster care again this year and need your help! Last year was one of our most successful drives and we are seeking to help even more kids this year! As most of you know, our area (Zone 2) consistently has the highest number of children in foster care, in the state of Arkansas. We are seeking to provide some Christmas cheer to as many of these kids as possible. We will accept donations at our two courthouse locations (301E Center Street in Greenwood and 35 S 6th Street in Ft Smith) up til December 19th. Any donations of new items for children between 1 to 18 are greatly appreciated. Please consider helping again this year, as every child deserves something at Christmas. Thank you so much for your consideration, and please SHARE AWAY to bring as much attention as possible.

Fort Smith committee provides funds for wounded veterans For several years, a local group has been working to help those who were injured during military service.Jimmy Christie, chairman of the Local Wounded

As we celebrate today, with our family and friends, let us take time to remember those who paid the price so that we may enjoy these freedoms today. Neither the wealthy nor the elite, but the everyday person who has sacrificed so much when our great nation placed the call. Although our words fall short, we say “thank you” from a grateful nation and make the solemn vow to never let your sacrifice be in vain.
