Waycross Journal-Herald Publisher Roger Williams (left) and Editor Jack Williams III present Empty Stocking Fund checks in equal amounts Wednesday to Salvation Army Waycross Corps Officer Kellie Cantrell (second from left) and Cathy Cason, representing the Ware County Department of Family and Children Services. The funds were donated by Journal-Herald readers between Thanksgiving and Wednesday morning. (Empty Stocking Fund donations that arrive from this point on will also be divided equally between the two agencies to help with needs of people in the area. Those gifts will be acknowledged in the J-H on Jan. 2.)
