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.
