Holiday Hope: Street rod ladies help campaign zoom past $45K

Holiday Hope fundraising accelerated significantly after a $1,000 donation from Ladies of the Liberty Street Rods, zooming past the $45,000 mark with two weeks to go.

Holiday Hope is an annual campaign, now in its 21st year, in which the Carroll County Times teams up with Access Carroll, Carroll County Food Sunday, Carroll Hospice, Neighbors in Need Year Round and The Shepherd’s Staff to help the less fortunate during the holidays. This year’s goal is to raise $125,000 for the five partner charities by Christmas.
