GRAVETTE The Village Art Club announces that Care and Share in Gravette will have a booth at the 42nd annual Bella Vista Arts and Crafts Festival scheduled October 14 - 16.

Nonperishable canned or boxed food such as mac & cheese, rice, beans, coffee, tea, juice, fruit, vegetables, crackers, hot/cold cereals, seasonings, etc.
are needed and will be welcomed.
Other items always needed to assist persons in need include diapers - all sizes, baby wipes, laundry detergent/ fabric softener, dishwashing liquid, cleaning products, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant (female & male), body wash/hand soap, toothbrushes/ toothpaste (adult & children), mouthwash, razors, shaving cream, lotion, toilet paper and feminine pads/tampons.
“When planning to attend the festival, please think about bringing something to donate,” said Pogue. If you have large items they may be taken to the Care and Share loading dock at 103 Main Street SE in Gravette or to schedule pickup of large items call 787-6760.
