Micah’s House, Saving Grace NWA
As we do every year, the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette asks nonprofits in the area what’s on their Christmas wish lists – volunteers, iPads, paper towels or gift cards, whatever they want. need. We hope our readers will reach out and make the holidays a joyful one for the organizations that do so much for our communities throughout the year.
This list will continue to appear in the Our Town section until January 2. To include your organization, send an email [email protected] or visit nwaonline.com/wishlist21/ to complete the form.
As an example, we reached out to Micah’s House and Saving Grace, both at Rogers, to get the ball rolling.
