WALNUT RIDGE, AR (KAIT) - A Walnut Ridge business is taking donations for residents of the Walnut Ridge Nursing and Rehabilitation Center.

The Family Dollar started taking donations in the store last week to collect items for Easter baskets for those residents.

Pam Grissom, the store's manager, said the people of Walnut Ridge were eager to get involved.

They filled half a bucket on the first day of collecting donations.

Grissom said they will be taking donations for the next couple of weeks.

So far people have donated several items including cookies, candies, and Easter decorations.

If you would like to donate items for the Easter baskets, you can do so at the Walnut Ridge Family Dollar on Southwest Front Street.
