UPDATE, Dec. 10, 11:10 a.m.: United Way of Independence County has agreed to provide a gift card for each of the children at the Youth Ranch, so this will fulfill the names from the Youth Ranch.
White River Now and Citizens Bank are sponsoring a special effort to make sure the young people at the Arkansas Sheriffs’ Youth Ranch have a very Merry Christmas this year.
We invite you to help fulfill the needs and Christmas wishes of the 18 children who have a place to call home because of the youth ranch.
Please stop by the Citizens Bank headquarters on St. Louis Street in Batesville, and ask Ashley Engles what you can do to brighten the holidays for these girls and boys, who range in age from 5 to 16.
Everyone deserves to have a good Christmas. Please do what you can, and know that White River Now, Citizens Bank, and the Youth Ranch thank you for your help. And we all wish you the happiest of holidays!
