THUMBS UP: Before we get too far past the holidays, one last thank-you to everyone who donated to our annual Holiday Hope Campaign. Thanks to the generosity of Carroll countians, more than $141,000 was raised for our five partner charities: Carroll Food Sunday, Neighbors in Need Year Round, Carroll Hospice, Access Carroll and The Shepherd's Staff. That easily surpassed our goal of $120,000 and it represented an all-time record haul in the 20 years we’ve been running Holiday Hope. That money, no doubt, will be put to good use by those nonprofits, helping those in need in our community. So, again, thanks to all who gave so generously and we hope we can help raise even more next year.
