It may seem the Christmas ads have been running since July, but for many, it’s hard to get into the Christmas spirit until Thanksgiving is history. At the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, we’re hoping the spirit of giving this season will inspire our readers and podcast listeners and we’ve created an opportunity to help others right here in our part of the state.

On this week’s episode of the Know the News podcast, we provide details of the annual Community Christmas Card project that will benefit the school pantries program of the Northwest Arkansas Food Bank.

Kent Eikenberry, president and CEO, and Sabrina Thiede, director of programs at the food bank, joined us recently to discuss their work against hunger and food insecurity as well as the opportunity presented through the Community Christmas Card.

This episode also previews some of the stories you will find in Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette for the weekend of Nov. 29.
