"It's not too late to make contributions to this year's campaign. Information is available online at PaloAltoOnline.com/holidayfund. The final publication of donors' names will be in the Friday, Jan. 20, edition of the Weekly."

So nice to read this story and the above comment. There are so many locally generous folks, even in these hard times.
