Women work to bring soldiers home for the holidays

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Several Region 8 women are spending their weekend asking the community to help bring their husband's home.  To get the soldiers in the 875th Engineer Battalion home for the holidays, the wives need to raise $20,000.

So far, they have raised $9,000.  With the December 1st deadline looming, they are desperate to get the money they need to see their husbands for Christmas.

"Us as military families, that's something that we stop and think about.  The other community might not look at it like that, but we do.  It's our loved one's that go out there defending everyone's freedom, and the military families that sacrifice our loved ones for you guys," said Jamie Clark.

There are two hundred soldiers that will need a ticket back home at $100 each.

You can reach Jamie Clark at jamieclark_1997@yahoo.com, or at 870-219-8780. 

There are accounts set up at First National Bank and Liberty Bank under "1036 FRG" and 1037 FRG" if you would like to donate at one of those locations.

    A Paragould family is a step closer to having their miniature horses living on their property as the city discussed an ordinance that would rezone their property from residential to agriculture. The property is located in the 3,000-block of Finch Road.
