Robert (Max) and Gloria Bair donated $1,500 in honor of “Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” to help Holiday Hope pass the $85,000 mark with time running out on the campaign.

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.
