HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- When The Huntsville Times and AL.com teamed with United Way of Madison County to introduce this year's Holiday Wishes Program, you took note.
When we began telling the stories of neighbors in need across our community, you responded. Generously. Abundantly.
The idea behind the program - which has publicized the top three "wishes" of 29 local charities - was to reach thousands of Madison County families. Donations are pouring in, and it is making a difference. But today is the last day of the program and there are many needs to be met.
After The Huntsville Times ran a story on the need for gift cards for the children in foster care at Harris Home for Children, the community stepped up to the plate.
